The facts: road safety and sustainable transport

Browse our fact sheets on key road safety and sustainable transport topics. A good place to start is our fact sheet on a safe system approach to road safety, which explains the United Nations-backed approach to tackling deaths and injuries on roads. Brake supports this approach to achieve our vision of a world of transport that is safe, sustainable, healthy and fair. 

For information on our campaigning work on these topics, see our campaigns pages. You can also visit our road safety advice pages, driver survey reports and road safety library. If you’re a fleet professional, see for resources and guidance relating to occupational road risk.
