This month signals the national campaign “road safety week”. This initiative was founded and is promoted yearly by Brake, a national road safety and sustainable transport charity. This year’s campaign, which we are supporting, runs from the 18th – 24th November and is entitled “step up for safe streets”.
Brake want people to learn about and promote solutions that allow everyone to travel around in safe and healthy ways. Safe journeys are achievable with a good road transport network, so human error doesn’t result in death or serious injury. It’s a shocking statistic, but someone is killed or seriously injured on a British road every twenty minutes. We’ll let that sink in for a moment.
