Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking, is urging all the political parties to prioritise safer streets in the upcoming election. It has released ‘A Manifesto for Walking’, today (18 November), which is also the start of Road Safety Week (18 – 24 November).
It wants politicians to commit long-term funding for walking and back stronger laws to create cleaner, safer and less congested streets.
The road safety pioneers celebrate their 90th anniversary this year and its early campaigning led to the UK’s first zebra crossings and speed limits.
The charity says that 26,000 people are killed or seriously injured on our roads each year and 36,000 premature deaths a year are attributable to air pollution. It adds that physical inactivity is costing the NHS £1.1 billion a year. Living Streets believes a better walking environment can be part of the solution.Read More
