Road safety - pedestrian safety on roads
Midblock crossings -- choosing a safe place to cross Where there is no marked pedestrian crossing available you need to choose a safe place to cross.
Avoid crossing at places with a limited view of approaching traffic. Crests of a hill can restrict your view of traffic.
Bends in the road make it difficult to see traffic and to be seen by drivers. Parked cars, shrubs, signs or other things on the road side also make it difficult to see or be seen. Choose a place to cross where you can see approaching traffic and drivers have a clear view of you. If possible, choose places where there are facilities to help you cross.
Cross where there is a kerb extension. Use a pedestrian refuge. On a divided road use the median strip if there is one. Always wait for a safe gap in the traffic when crossing. You should always plan your walking route to include safe crossing points. Make use of marked pedestrian crossings where possible. Remember to always choose a safe place to cross and wait for a safe gap in the traffic.
