Community campaign kit

So, you want to make streets in your area safer for local people, and prevent needless deaths and injuries? This guide to running a community campaign gives you lots of useful advice to get started.

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.

Getting improvements for your town or village and helping local people to use roads safely may take time, but it's amazing what can be achieved – and there are lots of examples of communities making big improvements, reducing casualties, and enjoying the benefits of safer streets.

The information and advice given in these pages will help to give your campaign the best possible chance of success.
