Road Safety Week 2020
13 Nov 2020
Road Safety Week
Everyday in the UK, five people are killed and more than sixty seriously injured on the roads. Therefore, increasing and promoting road safety is important. Whilst the number of people killed a day has halved since Brake started their work, there is still progress to be made.
Every year Road Safety Week has a different theme, for 2020 the theme is ‘No Need To Speed’.
No Need To Speed
The theme was chosen this year following a survey of 1700 people, which found that only 25% felt vehicles travelled at a safe speed where they lived. Speed can negatively affect the wellbeing of residents as well as their safety, therefore it was a priority for Brake to raise speed awareness.
Joshua Harris, director of campaigns at Brake states “speed plays a part in every crash and just 1mph can mean the difference between life and death on the roads”.

How To Get Involved
How To Ensure Your Car Is Safe
As well as building awareness around road safety it is important to ensure your car is operating at its peak. By regularly servicing your car, vital components such as brakes and tyres are checked over and maintained which ensures greater road safety for you, your passengers and other road users.
In the winter months more strain is placed on your car so a winter health check is an ideal way in which to make sure your car is prepared and safe for the colder months.
