May is here, and with that comes Road Safety Week. The theme for Road Safety Week this year is Be a road safety hero. This is an opportunity to recognise all those people who help to make our roads safer and who support people after a crash and explain how we can all play a part in making journeys safer for everyone. This is a national event that also coincides with the UN Global Road Safety Week which has the theme Streets for Life #RethinkMobility.
To encourage children to wear a helmet when cycling, skating, or scootering we are running a competition to design your own helmet. There are four age categories. The winner of each category will get their design painted onto a helmet by a professional artist.
Entries close on 31st May 2023.
