Road Safety Week 2015
Founded in 1997, Road Safety Week works with schools, organisations and communities to raise awareness of road safety and share simple steps that everyone can take to prevent accidents. Organisations such as nurseries, youth clubs, local businesses, sports clubs and local authorities often get on board with the initiative.
This year’s event runs from 23rd-29th November and the theme is Drive Less Live More, with a focus on the benefits of cutting down the amount of driving you do. These benefits include:
- reducing pollution
- saving money on fuel costs
- supporting public transport
- burning calories through exercise such as walking or cycling
- making streets safer by removing extra vehicles
