If you're walking, especially at night, you should make sure you can be seen by:
Wearing light-coloured clothing
Not crossing roads near the crest of a hill, on a bend or between parked cars, because it is harder for a driver to see you in these places.
Almost half of all pedestrian crashes occur within 30 metres of a crossing.
Whenever possible cross at pedestrian crossings, traffic lights or a pedestrian refuge. But make sure traffic has actually stopped before crossing.
If there are no crossings, cross where you have a good view of approaching traffic and drivers can see you from both directions.
If you're not sure, don't cross.
If you're involved in a crash your injuries are often severe. You are most likely to suffer from injury to your head and or lower parts of your body. So look after yourself and you're mates when walking and crossing the road.
