Scrap Car Comparison is supporting Road Safety Week this year by making Brake, the road safety charity, our Charity of the Month for the remainder of November.
The theme for this year’s Road Safety Week is ‘Let’s talk about speed’, bringing communities and professionals together to discuss speeding and why it’s seen as acceptable in some cases, what happens when we speed and why reducing speed saves lives. Five people die on the road every day, so why do we still think it’s OK to speed?
Held across Sunday 19 – Saturday 25 November, each day will focus on a group connected to Road Safety Week, giving everyone a chance to get involved.

“Every time we drive faster than the speed limit, or too fast for the road conditions, we increase the risk of a crash – and we increase the chance that someone will be killed or hurt on the road,” said Brake Interim CEO, Ross Moorlock. “The faster you go, the longer the stopping distance and the harder you will hit something.”
You can help support Brake and get involved with Road Safety Week by choosing to donate through our Donate-A-Car scheme.
