Make the pledge

It's Road Safety Week and the road safety charity Brake is asking everyone to sign their Pledge, whether they are a driver or not. The Pledge calls for people to drive less and, if they do drive, to do everything they can to protect themselves and the people around them.

Newbury is surrounded by country roads, but did you know...

  • 59% of all fatalities occur on country roads
  • Three people die each day on average on country roads
  • The number of people killed on country roads is nearly 10 times higher than on motorways
  • 10,307 people were killed or seriously injured last year on country roads in Great Britain
