Road Safety Week is the UK's biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake, the road safety charity.
Every year BRAKE choose a different theme for the week. This road safety week (18-24 November) they want everyone to 'Step Up For Safe Streets' and learn about, shout about and celebrate the amazing design-led solutions that will allow us all to get around in safe and healthy ways, every day. One of the aspects is ensuring safe journeys.
Safe journeys happen when we design our road transport network so that human error doesn't result in death or serious injury. This approach of safety be design is known as safe systems and the great news is that the solutions are known and available to us now! From safety technology in vehicles, to speed limits that reflect the safety of the roads, we can all step up to learn about, shout about and celebrate these proven solutions.
