Pedestrians are New Zealand’s forgotten road victims.
Each year almost four times as many pedestrians as cyclists are killed on New Zealand roads. Yet government has no Pedestrian Safety Plan and makes no investment in Urban Pedestrian infrastructure. We need an enquiry.
Please support Visual Impairment Charitable Trust Aotearoa NZ (VICTA) in this quest. Let’s make walking safer for everyone.
Please read through VICTA's statements below and sign their petition
