Northland Road Safety Week – 9-15 November 2020

Road Safety Week is coordinated annually by Brake and involves hundreds of schools, organisations and communities each year.

Brake is a road safety charity that works to prevent road death and injury, make streets and communities safer, and supports the victims of road crashes. Brake started Road Safety Week in New Zealand in 2012 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. Brake has also coordinated Road Safety Week in the UK since 1997.

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.

All sorts of people get involved – kindys, schools, youth clubs, community campaigners, employers, sports clubs, fire officers, local councils, paramedics, driving instructors… you name it!

Northland Road Safety will be promoting this year’s theme “Step up for Safe Streets” with events and activities across Northland.
