Throughout the RoadPeace Challenge week of action – May 13-19, 2024 - emergency services, safer roads partnerships, schools, businesses and communities were tasked with running, cycling, walking or horse riding 1,766 miles to honour the 1,766 people reported killed on UK roads in 2022. But we reached this ambitious target within 48 hours!
Together, we covered an incredible 16958.103 miles in seven days
