Children aged four to 11 are being asked to make their own designs

Primary school pupils across Bromley and Dartford are being urged to create their own banners to encourage safer driving.

Taking inspiration from this year’s Road Safety Week campaign, the competition is asking schools create a design based around the slogan “speed down save lives”.

Winners will be presented with a large-scale printed banner featuring their design to display outside their school. In addition, there’s a high-visibility drawstring bag for every pupil and the child behind the winning design will be given a special award.

For the ninth year running, Brake is running its road safety competition, together with promotional products firm Recognition Express.

Hugh O’Neil, director of Recognition Express Bromley and Dartford, said: “Anything we can do to remind drivers to take more care – especially around schools – is a good thing.

“We really enjoy looking at the entries and I am sure the ‘speed down’ theme will inspire even more excellent entries this year. We look forward to seeing the designs.”

This year’s Road Safety Week runs from November 20 to 26, with banner entries accepted until October 13.
