STOP PAUSE LOOK LISTEN
This new Road Safety Campaign has been created to highlight the dangers in the use of headphones and mobile technology whilst using busy roads.
This could be:
- when you are crossing a busy road
- when you are cycling
- when you are driving
- when you are jogging
The campaign isn’t out to spoil people’s enjoyment but to educate people in traffic awareness – and for this you need to use your eyes and ears.
It only takes a second of distraction from a text message – loud music – checking Facebook – and the consequences can last a life time.
Stay safe on the roads – find a safe place to cross and REMEMBER:
- STOP at the edge of the kerb
- PAUSE and remove your headphones
- LOOK for traffic
- LISTEN for traffic
If it is safe to cross then walk across the road all the time looking and listening
