Every year thousands of tots and infants aged 2-7 take part in a special Beep Beep! Day organised by their school, nursery, playgroup or childminder, to help save little lives. It's a great way to engage children with the road safety basics through fun activities, while raising awareness among parents and the wider community about protecting children on roads.
We produce brand new free and low-cost resources to help you run your events and reinforce those important road safety messages. Our national dates for 2019 are:
Wednesday 20 March
Wednesday 17 July
Wednesday 20 November, During UK Road Safety Week 2019
Use the button below to register for free. Everyone who registers will receive a free e-resource pack or for a small fee you can receive our Beep Beep! Day bumper resource pack!
The Bumper Pack contains stickers and certificates for all children taking part, posters to promote your event to parents, a hand print poster for children to learn about holding hands, laminated activity and song cards, a large road map, activity poster with cut-out shapes, and even balloons!
Running a Beep Beep! Day is also a great way to raise valuable funds for Brake's work, by inviting tots to come along to the day dressed in their stripiest clothes, like our mascot Zak the Zebra, in return for a donation to Brake.
Funds raised go towards Brake's work supporting families bereaved by road crashes and campaigning for road safety. Get some great ideas for fundraising here. For more inspiration take a look at what everyone got up to in 2017.
Not an educator? Your organisation can still get involved. We’ll give you guidance on how to run a Beep Beep! Day and advice on how to talk to little ones about road safety. You can also support your local school or nursery by purchasing and donating our bumper packs to them.
You can run an event on one of our national dates, or on a day that suits you. And if you don’t already have contacts with local schools or nurseries, we can help!
Contact the team for more information. Email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01484 550061.
You can also browse our online guides to teaching road safety to help you take action on road safety on any day of the year.
