The road rule drivers always get wrong

Pedestrian safety needs to start with educating drivers and better enforcement of pedestrian rights.

A police operation in Sidney NSW, aimed to “raise awareness about road safety in the cycling community and among pedestrians and to promote safe road use”

Is pedestrian safety still seen as mostly about policing pedestrian behaviour?

Zebra crossings and traffic lights are not the only times pedestrians have right of way.

There are many pedestrians who take silly risks when crossing the road, but there are even more drivers who do the wrong thing when it comes to giving way to pedestrians.

The difference is that the dangerous driver is far more likely to hurt someone else.
