Driving instructors - get involved!
In your job, you are best placed of all to influence the safety of the next generation of drivers. Read on for some simple ideas on how to get involved in Road Safety Week.
“IAM RoadSmart welcomes the focus on two wheeled safety as this year’s Road Safety Week theme. Riders must refresh their skills to ensure they share the roads safely with other vulnerable road users. IAM RoadSmart has a range of training courses available to support the new resources available for drivers and riders on the 2018 Road Safety Week website."
Mike Quinton, chief executive, IAM RoadSmart

Encourage young drivers and riders to make the Brake Pledge
Brake's Pledge calls for people to do everything they can to protect themselves and the people around them when they are using roads. Encourage young drivers and riders to think about Brake's Pledge points - Slow, Sober, Secure, Silent, Sharp, Sustainable - and make the Brake Pledge themselves.

Make some noise
Whatever you’re planning for Road Safety Week, make sure you let others know about it! There will be plenty of graphics and tools for social media in your action pack, but also use our we're taking part (yn Gymraeg) and we ♥ Road Safety (yn Gymraeg) posters to start the conversations now.
Also, please tell us about it by completing our online registration form. This helps us assess the impact of the Week, and we may also be able to offer you additional support, such as helping you achieve media coverage.
Why not: promote participation to colleagues and local organisations by using our e-flyers. You can use these on social media or through bulletins too. You can also print them off and put them on display.
