Everyone can make the Brake Pledge. It's a Pledge to do simple things to protect you and people around you, build happier communities, and help save the planet.
Make the Pledge at the bottom of this page.
Drivers - I'll stay under limits, and slow down to 30km/h around schools, homes, shops and roadworks to protect others. I'll slow to 20km/h when passing a stopped school bus in either direction. I'll slow right down for bends, brows and bad weather, and avoid overtaking.
Everyone - I'll speak out for slowing down and help drivers understand that the slower they drive, the more chance they have of avoiding a crash and saving a life.
Drivers - I'll never drive after drinking any alcohol or drugs - not a drop, not a drag.
Everyone - I'll plan ahead to make sure I, and anyone I'm with, can get home safely and I'll never get a lift with drink/drug drivers. I'll speak out if someone's about to drive on drink or drugs.
Drivers - I'll make sure everyone in my vehicle is belted up on every journey, and kids smaller than 148cm are in a proper child restraint. I'll choose the safest vehicle I can and ensure it's maintained.
Everyone - I'll belt up on every journey, and make sure friends and family do too.
Drivers - I'll never take or make calls or texts when driving. I'll turn off my phone or put it out of sight and on silent, and stay focused on the road.
Everyone - I'll never chat on the phone to someone else who's driving.
Drivers - I'll get my eyes tested every two years and wear glasses or lenses at the wheel if I need them. I'll take regular breaks and never drive if I'm tired, stressed or on medication that affects driving.
Everyone - I'll look out for friends and loved ones by ensuring they only drive if they're fit for it, and rest if they're tired.
Everyone - I'll minimise the amount I drive, or not drive at all. I'll get about by walking, cycling or public transport as much as I can, for road safety, the environment and my health.
