Be Brake Ready

On 20 November 2017, the City of London Corporation launched its Be Brake Ready campaign as part of National Road Safety Week. The campaign is part of the wider City Etiquette Principles, asking everyone to play their part in the mission to save lives and prevent serious injuries.

Be Brake Ready is one of several activities that aim to reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries in the City of London.

Analysis of KSI collisions data between 2012 – 2016 identified 22 serious collisions between people walking and cycling. This campaign will focus on raising awareness of these issues and reminding people who cycle and walk of the City Etiquette Principles throughout 2018.

We hope you will support us by spreading the #BeBrakeReady message.
