As the GO 20 campaign is launched through events across the UK, including Islington, a survey of 1,630 children in London and the South East by Brake and partners Brain Injury Group and Specsavers reveals how children are being affected by danger from fast traffic:
- Nearly eight in 10 (79%) say drivers need to slow down around their home and school
- Nearly eight in 10 (78%) say they would be able to walk and cycle more if roads in their neighbourhood were safer
- Nearly half (46%) say they have been hit or nearly hit while walking or cycling, and nearly six in 10 (58%) worry about being hurt by traffic when out and about
