Awareness Campaigns

2017 Pedestrians Campaign

"Seeing to my safety, it works!"

The Pedestrian campaign takes place during October, which is Pedestrian Safety Month. The campaign targets both pedestrians and drivers: 

  • as a driver, I must anticipate the presence of pedestrians, especially at intersections, and yield pedestrians the right of way.
  • as a pedestrian, I must follow certain rules and adopt safe behaviour, since I am also responsible for my safety.

For several years, Pedestrian Month has been a valuable opportunity to raise public awareness.
