Brake launches 2014 Giant Walking Bus
Brake has confirmed that its 2014 Giant Walking Bus event will take place on Wednesday 11 June.
Brake says that on that day “tens of thousands of kids will be marching for road safety from their school gates”.
Brake says that the UK has a “poor record for protecting children on foot compared” to many of its European neighbours. The charity says that half of schoolchildren are driven to school which increases pollution and danger, and affects health.
The event is designed to help schools teach children about safe walking, while also promoting safe driving to parents and local communities “to protect children on foot”. The project also raises funds for Brake's work to supporting families bereaved and injured in road crashes.
All schools that take part in the Giant Walking Bus receive a free resource pack to help them promote road safety and Brake also runs a scheme to recognise schools that go the extra mile to fundraise, educate and campaign.
