Road Safety Week is a UK-wide community-involvement event organised annually by Brake, the road safety charity. Each year focusses on a different theme.

Brake also uses the Week to launch a national and regional media campaign to promote road safety awareness and safer road use.

Five deaths and 66 serious injuries happen every day on UK roads.
