Road Safety Week 2012 - '20's Plenty'

by Andy Osborne on


With only 69 days to go to the start of  Road Safety Week, an initiative sponsored by Brake, the road safety charity they have announced the theme this year is ‘Slower Speeds = Happy People.’

They will be raising awareness of the vital importance of making it safer for people to walk and cycle in their own community, to get to work or school, and for their health and enjoyment. They will call on drivers to slow down to 20mph around homes, schools and shops – it’s a life-saver because it gives a good chance of stopping in time in an emergency.

They will also be appealing to the government to provide more funding for local authorities to introduce 20mph limits and other measures to protect people on foot and bicycle and make our communities happier, safer, greener places. The aim is to help people all over the UK to raise awareness about slowing down and campaign for action to protect pedestrians, cyclists, families, children, older people, runners, horse-riders – everyone in fact – from the dangers of fast traffic.
