Brake goes interactive

Brake, the road safety charity, has produced two free interactive resources for Road Safety Week (21– 27 November 2016), to support this year’s ‘Make the Brake Pledge’ theme.

Developed with the support of the Department for Transport, the resources encourage everyone to think about how our streets can be made safer by buckling up and concentrating on the road.

Take the seat belt challenge, based on the ‘Secure’ element of the Pledge, is a game for early years and Key Stage 1 children. It helps them to understand the importance of fastening seat belts and putting loose items out of harm’s way when travelling by car.

Driven to distraction!, based on the ‘Silent’ element of the Pledge, is a fun game for all ages. It challenges players to hunt out different ways in which road users can be distracted, revealing some surprising facts as the game unfolds.

Brake is urging everyone to do their bit throughout Road Safety Week 2016, sponsored by Aviva and Specsavers, to spread awareness of the vital importance of the Pledge rules: Slow, Sober, Secure, Silent, Sharp and Sustainable.

The open-access Take the seat belt challenge and Driven to distraction! interactive games complete a suite of six resources (together with Let’s GO20 quiz; Sober-up story; Sharpen up your driving; Drive less, live more) that cover each element of the Brake Pledge.
