Our theme for 2020: Step Up for Safe Streets

RSW19 StepUp 250This Road Safety Week (9-15 November) we want everyone to 'Step up for Safe Streets' and learn about, shout about and celebrate the amazing design-led solutions that will allow us all to get around in safe and healthy ways, every day.

Safe journeys

Safe journeys happen when we design our road transport network so that human error doesn’t result in death or serious injury. This approach of safety by design is known as the safe system approach and the great news is that the solutions are known and available to us now! From safety technology in vehicles, to speed limits that reflect the safety of the roads, we can all step up to learn about, shout about and celebrate these proven solutions.

Healthy journeys

Healthy journeys are important to help keep us healthy, fit and happy. We need to make sure that choosing to walk or cycle doesn’t put us at increased risk and that the air we breathe on our journeys is clean. We know the solutions here too – we need to prioritise safe spaces for travel on foot and by bike and ensure that the vehicles that remain on our roads use ultra-low emission technology.

Step up

We can all step up and play a part in the celebration of safe system solutions and the creation of a safe and healthy future:
