There are lots of opportunities for running road safety events in your community, ranging from a simple leaflet drop around houses in your community to leading road safety workshops.
Brake will support you every step of the way. Here are some suggestions for events where you can get your voice heard and help communicate important road safety messages.
- Get trained by Brake to deliver discussion-based workshops on our Pledge campaign to groups of drivers in companies and clubs.
- Get local kindergartens and childcare centres to run a Beep Beep! Day for Brake. It's easy and great fun!
- Fundraise for Brake. There are loads of ideas on our fundraising pages for ways to raise awareness about important road safety issues, while also raising much-needed funds for the charity.
- Road Safety Week! Whatever you do, do something in Road Safety Week, held in May every year. Visit roadsafetyweek.org.nz to find out more.
If you're campaigning for lower speed limits, you can find further advice on how to organise and deliver a successful event in your local community in the Slow Down Days: toolkit for organisers. Produced by the World Health Organisation (WHO), with the support of the 20s Plenty for Us Campaign, the toolkit offers step-by-step guidance and best-practice suggestions on how to run an effective road safety event that engages with local and national officials, the media and the wider public.
