Over 100,000 children across the UK have been marching in a Giant Walking Bus in order to highlight the issues of road safety for pedestrians and in particular young pedestrians.
The event has involved schools from all over the country, taking their children for a walk around their local community, all in high viz jackets, to remind vehicles of the importance of driving carefully in built up areas, especially where schools exist and to also advise children on the dangers of crossing roads and being aware of the vehicles around them.
The road safety charity, Brake, is launching its GO 20 campaign for a lower speed limit in built-up areas and are appealing for drivers to slow down to 20mph around areas with schools, shops, hospitals and houses and would like to campaign to the government for 20 mph limits to become permanent in these areas.
Brake’s GO 20′s site comments: ‘Every day seven children and 19 adults and are killed or seriously injured while walking or cycling on UK roads. Every death and injury is devastating for families involved, and entirely preventable. These casualties went up last year, adding to the case for action.’
Brake and webuyanycar.com surveyed nearly 400 children from the North West and discovered that 78% of children want to walk or cycle more but more than two thirds are concerned they might be run over by speeding vehicles when using the roads.
A 20mph speed limit nearly halves the stopping distance of a vehicle travelling at 30mph and case studies show that where the speed limits have been reduced to 20mph, there are far fewer casualties.
