Young people and road safety


Young people and road safety

Road crashes are the biggest killer of young people worldwide.

At the same time, young people can make a huge difference to road safety. They often make passionate, effective campaigners who understand the devastation road crashes cause to young lives. They can help prevent casualties, and make their communities safer and healthier, by speaking out for road safety and sustainable transport, and making and encouraging responsible decisions within their peer group.

If you teach or work with young people, there are three main ways you can work with Brake.
