Stop the Killing was formed ahead of our protest in November 2014, the National Funeral for the Unknown Victim of Traffic Violence. Our campaign focuses on 10 Demands to reform our broken road network and save lives.
The UK’s road network is not fit for purpose. People who choose to walk or to cycle are not catered for in a safe way – all too often the design of the road network puts them in conflict with people who are driving cars, buses and lorries.
Let’s together demand that local and national governments, and road designers, create a network fit for purpose for everyone, regardless of which way they travel on it: in a car, on a bicycle, in a mobility scooter, in a lorry, in a wheelchair, or in an HGV. Read our 10 DEMANDS for stopping traffic violence.
Many of the people campaigning for safer roads choose to use a bicycle to get around on & campaigners for improved cycling facilities share many of the same concerns as people who choose to walk – to get involved in the discussion please join our Facebook group STOP KILLING CYCLISTS.
