Organised by road safety charity, Brake, Road Safety Week will take place from 14th to 20th November. McGinley will join thousands of schools, organisations and communities from across the country to support the initiative, sharing important road safety messages, remembering those affected by road death and injury, and raising valuable funds for Brake.
McGinley will use free resources provided by the charity Brake, along with its fleet experience to share knowledge with workers staff and peers on the ‘who and how’ shares the road and how we can all use roads safely to protect ourselves and others.
And to help raise vital funds to support families affected by road crashes, staff will spend a day wearing their brightest colours on Friday 18th November – from tropical shirts and neon leg warmers to crazy-coloured wigs –to remind drivers to watch out for people who walk and cycle.
Funds raised will go to Brake's National Road Victim Service, which cares for around 1,000 road victim families every year who are bereaved and suffering horrendous injuries such as paralysis and brain injury. It costs around £1,200 for the National Road Victim Service to support a family for a year with vital emotional and practical support. Brake needs help to raise more than £1m every year to keep the service running.

Brake is a national road safety charity founded in 1995 to stop deaths, serious injuries and pollution on roads, and to care for families bereaved and injured in road crashes.
Brake campaigns for safe and healthy roads through seeking government policies and investment to end the carnage, and through projects that help local communities, schools and employers promote safe and pollution-free streets. Brake delivers Road Safety Week, one of the UK's biggest road safety campaigns.
Brake is the national provider of care and support to victims of road crashes and their families through the National Road Victim Service, helping families cope with the shock, turmoil and devastation that road crashes cause families across the UK every day.
