Road Safety isn’t just about looking after the highways, it incorporates the wider aspects of how we behave on the roads and interact with others.
Brake Road Safety Week
19 to 25 November 2018
Road Safety Week is an annual event that aims to inspire schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the week and beyond. This year's theme is “Bike Smart”, which hopes to raise awareness about the importance of protecting those on two wheels.
As well as promoting cycle safety to any pupils that come to school by bike, Brake Road Safety Week is also a great time to reinforce general road safety messages, including pedestrian safety.
