Play a part in making roads safer
Every day and every journey brings with it a new risk. Everyone needs to be on their guard at all times and take personal responsibility for their attitudes and behaviours when they travel.
Everyone has to behave responsibly as they share the road – for their own safety, the safety of their passengers and that of other road users.
Actions make a difference, such as:
- slowing down
- always paying attention
- never driving after drinking or taking drugs
- not using a mobile phone when driving
- looking out for those who walk, cycle, ride a horse, or ride a motorcycle as they are more vulnerable
- always wearing a seatbelt, no matter how short the journey
- being aware of how the weather might affect driving conditions
If you're a pedestrian, whether using a footpath, walking along a country road or simply crossing the road, always be aware of your surroundings. If walking at night, make sure you can be seen.
If you're a cyclist or motorcyclist, make sure you put your safety first.
