Road Safety Week

Why is Road Safety Week so important?

The theme of Road Safety Week 2022 is SAFE ROADS FOR ALL, bringing people together to raise awareness that every life on our roads matters, and every death and injury is preventable.

Road Safety Week will draw attention to key areas of road safety the government supports, including safe roads, safe vehicles and speeds, the new hierarchy of road users, and the importance of inclusivity to keep us all safe on the roads, no matter who we are or how we travel.
