Our three asks following the spate of horrific road violence

Filed under: Campaign / General

In just one month, between 16 May and 15 June 2023, four people were killed and a further four seriously injured while walking or cycling in Birmingham. Three were children. They were just trying to go about their lives.

Over the coming weeks, we are meeting with politicians, authorities and community groups.

We will be pressing politicians and authorities to deliver three asks. These asks will change the culture of thoughtless driving and give people safe alternatives.

We first talked about these asks at Birmingham Live’s round table on road safety. You can watch a recording of the live stream on Facebook.
