Safer Pedestrian Journeys

Roads will be safer for pedestrians when actions outlined in the Safer Journeys strategy are implemented.

 “We applaud the move to change the give way rules for turning traffic”, says Peter Kortegast, President of Living Streets Aotearoa.  “Drivers concentrating on oncoming traffic, and whether they have right of way to turn, often fail to see pedestrians crossing at intersections, with tragic results.  Making intersections safer for all road users will cut the number of crashes.”
