We often post about road safety as it’s important that everyone stays safe on the road whether they’re a pedestrian, cyclist or a passenger travelling in a vehicle. Children and young people can be especially vulnerable travelling to or from school or when out with friends.
With the days getting shorter, the evenings are darker and the risks are potentially higher.
BRAKE, the road safety charity has announced that their annual Road Safety Week will be running this year from 15-21 November. The theme of Road Safety Week 2021 is ROAD SAFETY HEROES, celebrating the heroic work of road safety professionals, and explaining how we can all play a part in making journeys safer for everyone.
We will remind you about this again, but why not put the dates in your diary now.
Aside from their campaigns, BRAKE also produces some great educational resources for schools and families.
