Pedestrians and drivers need to work together to make walking safe, convenient, comfortable, and fun for people of all ages and abilities.
Tips for pedestrians in winter months
Being aware of our surroundings is key – although hoods, hats and umbrellas are necessary in our climate, it is important you have good visibility.
Always make eye contact with approaching drivers and cyclists before crossing the road.
Wear bright reflective clothing at night or during poor visibility. There are even reflective items for your pets.
Don’t “jaywalk”. Cross at crosswalks and obey traffic signals.
Pay attention and don’t text while walking.
