Brake’s Road Safety Week – running from 20 to 26 November – is the biggest road safety event in the UK, and Brake is looking for your help to promote the message ‘Speed Down Save Lives’ – the focus of this year’s campaign.
The campaign aims to raise awareness about the dangers of driving too fast – here are a few facts on why the theme is important:
- Breaking the speed limit or travelling too fast for conditions is recorded by the police at crash scenes as a contributory factor in 23% of fatal crashes
- Drivers with one speeding violation annually are twice as likely to crash as those with none
- A recent Brake survey found that four in ten UK drivers admitted they sometimes drive at 30mph in 20mph zones
