Shoalhaven revs up road safety message

Shoalhaven City Council, in partnership with Transport NSW, is rolling out the ‘Look Out Before You Step Out’ pedestrian safety campaign.

The campaign, first launched in October 2016, aims to educate pedestrians to take an extra moment before crossing a road, as well as choosing safe times and places to cross — particularly on higher risk urban roads.

“All of our road users are pedestrians at some time or another. Taking risks and not being mindful on the roads can end in tragedy. It is really important to be in the moment, take a look around, and make safe decisions,” said Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Amanda Findley.

“With the increase in technology use, people are becoming easily distracted and less aware of their surroundings. The decals are especially designed to stop people on mobile phones risking their lives by walking out into traffic without looking,” Mayor Findley said.
