How you can help

 

Get behind the campaign and rally support for a crucial change in the law to prevent deaths and injuries on the road.

You can sign online and also print out blank pages to gather scores of other signatures, whether by collecting door-to-door with other helpers.

Get organised, motivate your friends, family, neighbours, traders, MPs, councillors, schools and local organisations, such as Guides and other youth groups, to climb aboard and sign the petition.

You can then scan the pages into your computer and email them to us. Share the link to our petition with your contacts and ask them to share it with theirs. Signatures will soon snowball.

Follow us on Twitter and market our campaign on your social networking accounts and pages. Ask your social network contacts to pass on information about the petition to their friends too by copying and pasting your message into their status update or retweeting it if they are on Twitter.

Getting media coverage may feel daunting but it’s easier than you think if you’ve got a great story. Set up a photo opportunity such as volunteers running a stall at a community event or handing a petition to your MP and let the news editors and picture editors of your local newspaper know. Contact numbers are usually on page two of a local newspaper and online. Tell your local radio stations and online community news sites too.

It adds gravitas to your campaign. They may be local or national figures who live locally or have a passion for our cause and campaign.

Use these to highlight the campaign at times such as World Road Safety Day on June 10, World Sight Day on October 11, National Eye Health Week from September 24 to 30 and Road Safety Week from November 20 to 26.
