What is a Beep Beep! Day

A Beep Beep! Day is a road safety day run by schools, nurseries, playgroups or childminders to teach important road safety basics to very young children (aged 2–7).

Brake provides an action pack full of ideas and fun activities that focus on three important topics:

  1. Holding hands with a grown up when walking near roads
  2. Crossing roads at safe places with a grown up
  3. Using a child seat when travelling by car.

Beep Beep! Days are a great opportunity to talk to parents and carers about how they can help keep young children safe around roads, raise awareness in the community, or work with a local authority to address a road safety issue. It's also a great time to fundraise for Brake and support our vital work helping families who have lost loved ones in road crashes.

Why are Beep Beep! Days important?

Road safety is a subject that even the youngest children know something about because road danger affects everyone. Danger from traffic is a big factor in whether families are able to walk and cycle safely in their community. It affects their ability to be healthy and socially active.

Even though very young children shouldn’t walk or cycle independently, they are still at risk of being hurt or killed when walking or cycling. It's not a nice fact to hear but every day six children are killed or seriously injured on UK roads – that’s equivalent to a whole class of children every single week.

Road safety is the perfect topic for activities that can really engage, protect and benefit young children, and Beep Beep! Days are a perfect way to do it.

With support from Timmy and friends, we can help you to focus everyone’s attention on making travel safer and healthier for all.

We regularly take part in Beep Beep! Day and enjoy using the bumper pack. The children love receiving their stickers and certificates and the information cards are very valuable for staff to use too.

Timmy’s youth and inexperience make him the perfect character to help very young children learn important lessons about road safety.

As Timmy and his friends head off to Nursery, they have lots to learn about the important things in life, including caring for other people and doing ‘the right thing’.
