Are you concerned traffic in your area is putting people in danger, frightening families, and stopping people from walking and cycling freely? Is there a need for lower speeds and better pavements, paths and crossings? Has someone already been hurt and you want to take action to stop it happening again?
Brake and our mascot, Zak the Zebra, are here to help. As well as campaigning nationally for all our communities to 'GO 20', Brake and Zak provide help to communities wanting to take action for safer streets. Zak teams up with schools, groups, councillors and MPs to campaign for 20 limits, enforcement, pavements, paths and crossings, and to call on drivers to slow down.
So if you want to campaign locally or are already campaigning, get in touch here. We'll email you advice and may be able to arrange for Zak to visit and generate publicity for your campaign (by loaning you Zak for your demonstration, event or Brake fundraiser, and sending a press release to your local media to invite them along).
Zak the Zebra now has his own Twitter account! Follow him for updates on his campaign activities @ZakBrake.
You can also report concerns to Zak by calling his hotline on 08000 687780, kindly operated by our partners Irwin Mitchell.
