Road Safety Week is a UK-wide community-involvement event organised annually by Brake, the road safety charity. Each year focusses on a different theme.
Brake also uses the Week to launch a national and regional media campaign to promote road safety awareness and safer road use.
Road Safety Week 2016 – Make the Brake Pledge
This year our campaign encouraged people to make and share the Brake Pledge to help stop the five deaths and 64 serious injuries that happen every day on UK roads.
To further highlight the dangers of what can happen when people don’t follow the Brake Pledge, the charity released six short films, one for each of the Pledge points.
The films were premiered online on 21 Nov to mark the start of Road Safety Week.
