2014 Pedestrians Campaign

“Pedestrians aren't protected like cars, and have no chance against one”

The 2014 campaign – “Pedestrians aren't protected like cars, and have no chance against one” – aimed to improve the safety of pedestrians at intersections.

If pedestrians must follow the rules about crossing at intersections, drivers must also be vigilant and courteous.

In 2013, 55% of pedestrians involved in an accident were injured or killed at an intersection.
