Following the success of last year’s event, which reached an estimated 100,000 children, Brake is once again offering free learning resources to anyone who wants to teach young children important road safety messages.

Children of all ages are at risk of being hurt or killed when walking near roads. On average, six children are killed or seriously injured on roads in Britain every day – the equivalent to an entire classroom of children every week.

By signing up to Brake’s Beep Beep! Day, nurseries, schools and educators can access a free action pack featuring lessons, activities, certificates and posters, illustrated with characters from Aardman’s popular children’s TV programme Timmy Time.

Brake, the road safety charity, has been running educational road safety projects at a national level for more than 15 years. The charity is also behind November’s Road Safety Week and delivers the National Road Victim Service to support families bereaved or seriously injured by road crashes.

Ross Moorlock, chief executive officer at Brake, said: “Beep Beep! Day is a great opportunity to start a conversation with young children about why road safety is so important. It is up to us as grown ups to keep children safe on our roads, and this is a great way to engage their attention and help them learn about making safe journeys. It's also a good opportunity to send vital safety messages out to all parents, carers and the wider community too.”
