UK Road Safety Week 2019

5 June 2019

UK Road Safety Week 2019 will take place between 18th -24th November and will encourage road users to ‘step up’ and play a part in the creation of a safe and healthy future.

Road Safety Week seeks to raise public awareness of road safety issues, and is intended to act as ‘the driver for positive change on UK roads’.

The annual event aims to inspire teachers, youth workers and early-learning educators to engage pupils of all ages in lessons and activities that encourage safe and responsible road use.

The theme for 2019 is ‘Step up for Safe Streets’ – with Brake asking all road users to ‘learn about, shout about and celebrate the design-led solutions that can enable everyone to get around in safe and healthy ways, every day’.

The focus is on how design can stop human error from causing death or serious injury on the roads, can encourage walking and cycling, and can make sure that the air is clean.
