Pedestrian Safety

When you're traveling outside of your vehicle, you're a pedestrian! 

A pedestrian is a person who is:

  • Walking, jogging, or running on foot
  • Using a method of transport such as a bicycle, skateboard, scooter, tricycle, or roller skates
  • An individual with a disability that is using a wheelchair, tricycle, or quadricycle

Pedestrian safety is the responsibility of both the pedestrian and motorists.
