Road Safety Week

About Road Safety Week

What is Road Safety Week?

Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake, the road safety charity.

Road Safety Week aims to inspire thousands of schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the Week and beyond. It also provides a focal point for professionals working in road safety to boost awareness and engagement in their work.

Every year we choose a different theme for the Week: read about this year’s theme here. You can base your activities on our theme, or choose to focus on any other road safety issue that’s important in your area.


Communities – take action for safer roads

Are you a community campaigner, or do you run a local society or club? Then register now to take part in Road Safety Week!

Road safety is a community issue. Dangers such as fast drivers and lack of safe cycling routes blight communities across the UK. Road Safety Week is the ideal time for local people to get together and run awareness-raising activities, campaigns or events.

It’s easy to take part. Last year, many communities ran local events, including those in Birmingham, who raised awareness about the importance of driving at 20mph and below in communities. They used the Week as an opportunity to promote the benefits of the 20’s Plenty initiative.

Join hundreds of community groups who have signed up to campaign or fundraise during the Week, and we’ll stay in touch with you along the way, helping you run great activities. To get your Road Safety Week action pack of tips and downloadable resources, register today!

If you can’t run activities but want to help, please support us with a secure online donation or call 01484 559909 to donate by credit card.
