Road Savvy Campaign

Road crashes are the biggest single killer of young people in the UK

 

In every region of the UK, young people are more likely to die or suffer life-changing injuries on the roads than any other age group. 

 

Fixers across the nation are taking action against the carnage and speaking out to make the UK's roads safer for everyone.
