The Brake Pledge
It is road safety week this week, the theme this year is “Bike Smart” and to help everyone feel and be as safe as possible, Brake have designed a pledge for drivers and non drivers to sign. To help them get there, everyone can sign the Pledge, whether they are a driver or not. The Pledge calls for people to drive less and, if they do drive, to do everything they can to protect themselves and the people around them.
The pledge calls on the three ‘s’s –
SLOW – Driving the speed limit and not exceeding it.
SOBER – Driving NOT under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
SECURE – Seatbelts worn by all passengers and the driver.
SILENT – No mobile phones or anything that will distract you from the road and driving.
SHARP – Focused driving.
SUSTAINABLE – Minimising the amount you drive, and not taking unnecessary journeys.
