Every month, five children are killed and 179 are seriously injured on our roads while on foot or bicycle.
Brake, the road safety charity, has created a special event called Beep Beep! Day to help you kick-start your road safety learning, support their vital work and help to promote slower speeds and safer driving in your local communities. Whether you are a nursery, infant school, child minder, playgroup, primary school teacher or children’s club organiser, you can take part. You can choose to run your Beep Beep! Day on any day of the year.
The day provides an opportunity for you to teach simple road safety lessons to kids and parents, such as the importance of holding hands and staying away from traffic, while children do fun activities, such as making a wall poster of hand prints, singing a road safety song, or even helping to wash parents’ cars. You can also use Beep Beep! Day to help raise valuable funds for Brake and their work supporting families bereaved by road crashes.
Everyone running a Beep Beep! Day receives an information pack containing FREE road safety resources including stickers, placards, posters, wall charts and certificates for the children and tips for planning the day are available at www.beepbeepday.org.uk
