Five people are killed every single day by something we already know how to cure – dangerous driving. Our roads are dangerous places, where hundreds of deaths and serious injuries take place every week. But by adults changing their driving behaviour, we can help to make our villages, towns and cities safer places to be. Every action that we take, as a driver or as a passenger, can change the outcome of a journey and the future of a family.That’s why for this year’s Road Safety Week the focus has been put on the six elements of the Brake Pledge: Slow, Sober, Secure, Silent, Sharp and Sustainable.
This week in school you can share this Brake’s Pledge and talk about ways that you can support adults in being safer – you can take the Pledge too, promising to help drivers stick to the six Pledge points. It’s also a good time for you to look at how you can be safer as a pedestrian when you’re walking around Nottingham and learn more about the Green Cross Code, especially as you can use this to take part in the Nottingham Road Safety Quiz! So take action, make a difference, and Pledge to help adults do six simple things to save lives this Road Safety Week.
