Safer For Pedestrians

Attention: open in a new window. PDF | Print | E-mail



 Many of us remember being taught the Green Cross Code as a child, and to this day, this remains the mantra to remember when we’re pedestrians.

The Code provides a guide to help people cross roads safely. From the age of eight years, children can be taught the Green Cross Code whilst boys and girls below this age should be taught the more basic message of Stop, Look and Listen.

To be a safe pedestrian, use your eyes, ears, judgement and common sense.

You and your child should

  • STOP with toes behind the kerb, or edge of the road if there is no footpath;
  • LOOK in all directions for approaching traffic;

  • LISTEN in all directions for approaching traffic;

  • When safe to do so, walk straight across the road. Keep LOOKING and LISTENING for traffic while crossing.
