Road Safety Week – Make The Pledge

tranzaura-uk-road-safety-week-logos

Road Safety Week 21 – 27 November 2016

Make The Pledge

Road Safety Week 2016, which takes place from Monday 21st November until Sunday 27th November, is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake and involving thousands of schools, organisations and communities each year.

Brake is a road safety charity that works to prevent road death and injury, makes streets and communities safer, and supports victims of road crashes. Brake founded Road Safety in 1997 as an annual event to raise awareness about road safety and promote steps that everyone can take to stop these needless deaths and injuries year-round.

Road Safety Week aims to inspire communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the Week and beyond. It also provides a focal point for professionals working in road safety to boost awareness and engagement in their work.

Brake’s vision is a world where streets are pleasant, unpolluted and safe for everyone to use freely. To help get there, everyone can make the pledge which calls for people to drive less, and if they do drive, to do everything they can to protect themselves and the people around them.

make-the-pledge

Slow

Drivers – I’ll stay under limits, and slow down to 20mph around schools, homes and shops to protect others. I’ll slow right down for bends, brows and bad weather, and avoid overtaking.
Everyone – I’ll speak out for slowing down and help drivers understand that the slower they drive, the more chance they have of avoiding a crash and saving a life.

Sober

Drivers – I’ll never drive after drinking any alcohol or drugs – not a drop, not a drag.
Everyone – I’ll plan ahead to make sure I, and anyone I’m with, can get home safely and I’ll never get a lift with drink/drug drivers. I’ll speak out if someone’s about to drive on drink or drugs.

Secure

Drivers – I’ll make sure everyone in my vehicle is belted up on every journey, and kids smaller than 150cm are in a proper child restraint. I’ll choose the safest vehicle I can and ensure it’s maintained.
Everyone – I’ll belt up on every journey, and make sure friends and family do too.

Silent

Drivers – I’ll never take or make calls, read or type when driving. I’ll put communication devices out of reach, and stay focused on the road.
Everyone – I’ll never chat on the phone to someone else who’s driving.

Sharp

Drivers – I’ll stay focused on safe driving. I’ll take regular breaks and never drive if I’m tired, stressed or on medication that affects driving. I’ll get my eyes tested every two years and wear glasses or lenses at the wheel if I need them.
Everyone – I’ll look out for friends and loved ones by ensuring they only drive if they’re fit for it, and rest if they’re tired.

Sustainable

Everyone – I’ll minimise the amount I drive, or not drive at all. I’ll get about by walking, cycling or public transport as much as I can, for road safety, the environment and my health.

Make the pledge and help keep our roads safe for all users. To show our support for Road Safety Week we’re offering a 10% discount on our safety solutions for all who sign up during the campaign. Contact a member of our team to find out how we can help ensure you “Stay Safe, Stay Smart and Stay Legal”.
