Follow these simple guidelines to help keep yourself safe.

We want to you to get out and walk, explore your surrounding and  try new routes.

  • Make sure other road users can see you – wear light-coloured clothing or something fluorescent
  • In the dark, wear a high visibility vest and/or reflective accessories to ensure other road users see you in plenty of time
  • Don’t walk between cars queuing at lights or in slow-moving traffic – cyclists and motorbikes can’t see you
  • Cross the road at zebra and pelican crossings
  • Give yourself plenty of time – accidents are more likely to happen if you’re in a rush!
  • Keep at least one ear free from headphone so you can be more aware of surroundings
  • Check the weather forecast and plan your route accordingly also look at our page on walking in all weathers
