THE UK CHARITY FOR EVERYDAY WALKING
Changes to the Highway Code have been announced, including putting pedestrians at the top of a new road user hierarchy.
There are also changes at zebra crossings and junctions to give pedestrians priority. Living Streets and our supporters fought hard to win these revisions.
Poorly-placed bins and bike racks. Excessive signage and guard rails.
Street clutter can clog up our pavements and make it hazardous for people to get around.
No one needs it, let's get rid of it!
Our new research has revealed that people from poorer communities are more likely to be killed or injured on Britain’s roads.
And for people from ethnic minority groups (excluding white minorities) the risk is greatest of all.
Read our report - and find out what we need to do to address this inequity.
Want to be part of the pupil-led scheme that is helping thousands of schools tackle road safety issues, pollution, congestion and childhood inactivity?
WOW, our flagship walk to school challenge, is back with brand new resources for primary schools for the 2021/22 year with theme 'WALK FOR THE WORLD'.
A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half.
We want to reverse this decline. We want children to be energised and empowered, and to make walking to school their natural choice.
And we know just how to do it.
