Campaign to Make Roads Safe

Dirty Pretty Things will support the Make Roads Safe campaign with a concert in London in September.

The band will play a special gig at The Coronet, in South London, on September 13th in support of Make Roads Safe, an international campaign calling for the G8 to take action on road traffic injuries, which kill more than 1.2 million people around the world, the majority in developing countries. Two hundred pairs of tickets to the concert will be given away free by the Make Roads Safe campaign and Dirty Pretty Things to supporters in a prize draw.

Dirty Pretty Things’ commitment to the campaign is motivated in part by a recent tragedy in which three teenage girls were killed. Two sisters, Claire and Jennifer Stoddart, and their friend, Carla Took, died in a car crash in July while driving home from a concert in Ipswich at which Dirty Pretty Things had performed.

The main aim of the Make Roads Safe campaign, coordinated by the FIA Foundation and RAC Foundation, is to raise public awareness about the impact of road crashes in developing countries:

Every 3 minutes – the average length of a song – a young child is killed on the world’s roads, and four are permanently disabled.

The Make Roads Safe campaign and rock band Dirty Pretty Things are launching a new online viral game to raise awareness about the impact of road deaths around the world and build support for the campaign.
