Pedestrians must take the necessary measure to provide safety on roads. The simple rule is to stop, look, listen and think before crossing the road. Pedestrians should never take it for granted that a driver has seen you and will stop for you. Before crossing the road, think about whether the approaching driver can see you and always cross at a pedestrian crossing, traffic signals or at a pedestrian refuge.
