Road Safety Week 2016 (21-27th November)

Five people are killed every single day on our roads. By changing our driving behaviour, we can help make our roads safer. For Road Safety week Brake are suggesting we focus on the six points of their Pledge

Slow, Sober, Secure, Silent, Sharp and Sustainable.

Brake are asking everyone to make and share Brake’s Pledge online, and show their commitment to saving lives and keeping our roads safe. Anyone can join in – individuals, businesses and community organisations.

So take action, make a difference, and Pledge to do six simple things to save lives this Road Safety Week.
