RSW activity ideas for organisations

Road Safety Week is an ideal opportunity to promote life-saving messages and show your commitment to road safety to employees and their families, customers, suppliers and your community. You could use the Week as an opportunity to train staff, raise awareness or partner with local schools, community groups and road safety professionals to promote safer roads. Many organisations use the Week to link existing activities to a national event, or as a springboard to launch year-round road safety programmes.




A note on COVID-19: Whilst COVID-19 continues to have an impact on organisations and communities at times, we are ensuring that a number of Road Safety Week activity suggestions can be adapted to run in various settings, whether at your organisation's premises, at home or via online meetings/communication.

Go Yellow!

Brake is a member of the Yellow Ribbon Road Safety Alliance, aiming to raise awareness of road safety. One of the ways we do this is through the colour yellow, by wearing yellow or a yellow ribbon pin and by lighting up bridges and buildings in yellow during Road Safety Week. You can join in and help raise awareness by having a yellow dress-down day, lighting your own building in yellow, or going yellow in another way. Find out more.
