With Road Safety Week 2013 approaching (18 – 24 November), road safety professionals are being encouraged to plan activities for the week.
Road Safety Week is co-ordinated annually by the charity Brake and thousands of schools, communities and other organisations take part. This main theme this year is ‘tune in to road safety’.
Brake says that the week provides an opportunity for road safety teams, emergency services and road safety partnerships to promote road safety activities, run one-off events or launch a new campaign.
Brake is particularly encouraging professionals to link to the ‘tune in’ theme and promote the message of avoiding distractions at the wheel.
Julie Townsend, Brake’s deputy chief executive, says: “Road Safety Week is a perfect focal point for all of us working in road safety: a chance to speak out together about the difference everyone can make in improving road safety and preventing tragedies.
“Each year local authorities, emergency services and other partners invest tremendous energy in getting the road safety message across during the Week, often gaining extra recognition for the work they do year-round.”
Road safety professionals can access free electronic resources from Brake by registering on the Road Safety Week website.
