ROAD Safety Week takes place between November 14th and 20th. The theme of Road Safety Week 2022 is ‘SAFE ROADS FOR ALL.’
Every life on our roads matters, and every death and injury is preventable. Brake – the road safety charity – are promoting how clubs and other organisations can get involved in Road Safety Week 2022.
Across the week, Brake will be giving us all ideas for how we can MOVE, THINK, WATCH, TEACH, SAVE lives and SUPPORT people affected by road crashes, all while imagining a FUTURE where no one is killed or injured on a road.
Brake will help us to understand why we need safe rosds for all and draw attention to key areas of road safety, including safe roads, safe vehicles and speeds, the new hierarchy of road users, and the importance of inclusivity to keep us all safe on the roads.

Ulster GAA’s long-standing Live To Play campaign is there for all to use and interact with. Perhaps clubs could set small tasks for young members by utilising the colouring resources. Clubs could also help celebrate our own road safety heroes by promoting the messages delivered by our county stars.
Our Live to Play social media campaign reminds us all of the need to reduce our speed, and reminds us of the other common behaviours which cause death and serious injury on our roads. Keep an eye out for our Live to Play Ambassadors on social media during Road Safety Week, and heed their messages. More information on Live to Play can be found at: https://ulster.gaa.ie/health/
Ulster GAA’s partnership with the NI Fire & Rescue Service is once again available to clubs, after a lay-off during Covid.
In mid-October the NIFRS Your Choice programme was delivered to young males from the Silverbridge Harps GAA.
Representatives from the NIFRS visited the club as part of a four-week Club Engagement Programme, where road safety was one of the themes being discussed.
Although we are all at risk on our roads, young males aged 16-24 years are the most at-risk group of death or serious injury.
The Your Choice programme will also be delivered to young males in Kinawley, Brian Borus in November as part of the Ulster GAA Club Engagement Programme.
