Safety: Road Safety Week Review

At Deliveroo, safety is taken seriously. Our priority is that you and others feel safe at all times when you’re on the road with us.

Last week was Road Safety Week. We highlighted the importance of road safety and the ways you can stay safe while riding – here’s a round-up of the information, events, discounts and prizes that were available along the way.

Here are the key things to remember when on the road.

  • Obey traffic lights and signals
  • Pass pedestrian crossings appropriately
  • Make sure your vehicle is fit for the road
  • Wear appropriate, reflective clothing and a protective helmet
  • Have working lights on your bicycle at all times
