Police urge road users, pedestrians to avoid risks after a number of incidents of driver, pedestrian fatalities
Police are appealing for road users and pedestrians to share the roads safely, avoid risks and behave responsibly after a number of separate crashes. Traffic & Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley, urged motorists, cyclists, motorbike riders and pedestrians to avoid taking risks and behave responsibly.
• Always use pedestrian crossings
• Never assume that an approaching vehicle can see you, or will stop for you – wait until all vehicles have stopped before you cross
• At intersections, check for turning vehicles before you leave the kerb, and while you are crossing the road
• Avoid crossing between parked cars or at the front or back of buses
• Wear bright, light coloured clothing at night or in reduced visibility conditions
• Avoid using a mobile phone or portable media player (so you can hear vehicles and concentrate on crossing the road)
• At traffic lights, make sure that vehicles stop before you start to cross, and don’t enter the road if vehicles are moving through the crossing.
Operation Saturation is targeting risky driving, including speeding and drink and drug-driving. Police are urging all motorists to observe proper occupant restraints, manage fatigue and display responsible driver behaviour, with both stationary and mobile enforcement of areas in place where serious motor vehicle collisions are occurring.
