BriteAngle becomes new co-headline sponsor of Road Safety Week

Road Safety Week 2017

BriteAngle has become a co-headline sponsor of UK Road Safety Week, which takes place from November 20-26.

The company, which makes warning triangles with flashing, high-intensity LEDs, joins Aviva in supporting the event, which is co-ordinated by road safety charity Brake and supports the Department for Transport.

For 20 years Road Safety Week has been inspiring employers, especially those with staff who drive for work, to develop and promote safe travel internally, raise awareness in their local community and link with other organisations to run road safety campaigns.

Free resources on this year’s theme Speed Down Save Lives are now available to all companies who register for free via www.roadsafetyweek.org.uk.

This includes downloadable and interactive resources aimed at both drivers and children, advice on how to promote slower speed limits, and case studies of what other companies have done.

Dave Nichols, community engagement manager for Brake, said: “Speeding remains a major problem in the UK. Not only does it put people's lives at risk, but it prevents them from being able to walk and cycle safely in their communities.

"We all live busy lives and there is often a temptation to speed up in the hope of saving time, where in fact we could be costing lives. That is why we’re encouraging everyone to Speed Down Save Lives this Road Safety Week.

“Companies can help get these vital messages out to drivers, families and young people, making a big difference to their local community. I would encourage anyone who hasn’t already registered to sign up now for our free action pack.”
