Much is said about driving and being safe, but when walking along the streets and using your mobile device, it is just as important to remain safe.
It is so easy to let something on your mobile device distract you, and serious accidents can occur – particularly if you are around traffic.
What can you do?
- Thank about where you are walking, what is near you, and what are the possible dangers. Listen carefully and watch what is going on near the road,
- When you are actually crossing the road, turn the music down or off – if you can’t hear the traffic, you can be in danger,
- The same care needs to be taken when embarking on or disembarking from public transport.
