I'm Zak the Zebra, mascot for Brake the road safety charity.
Do you want to find out more about road safety? You've come to the right place.
Did you know... road crashes are the biggest killer of young people worldwide.
I don't think anyone should be hurt by roads and everyone has the right to walk and cycle safely in their community.
Here are some ways you can get involved to help make roads safer for all children.
Be a good role model
Always wear a seatbelt
Always wear a helmet on a bicycle or motorcycle
Be visible as a pedestrian or cyclist
Use footpaths and cycle paths where available
Use safe crossing places where available
Know and respect the Highway Code
Learn some first aid skills and know how to react in case of a crash
Talk about road safety
You can talk about road safety at school and at home, with your friends and with your family. You can also talk to teachers and to people that run local businesses. You could write to your local MP if you are worried about road safety where you live, or use social media to tell your followers why you’re getting involved with road safety.
Campaign for safer roads
You, your family, and people of all ages in your community have a right to be able to use roads without fear or threat. You can make a big difference by getting together with others and shouting loud and proud about road safety.
Want to make your community a safer place? You can campaign for:
Safe crossing places
Lower speed limits
Anything else that will help make the streets where you live nicer and safer.
So, if you want to make streets in your area safer for local people, and prevent needless deaths and injuries, our guide to running a community campaign will give you lots of useful advice to get you started.
Fundraise for a road safety charity and have lots of fun while raising money for a good cause.
