Key messages

  • Pedestrian safety is a concern at night and in wet weather. In fact 43 per cent of all crashes that injure pedestrians happen between October and January as visibility and conditions get worse.
  • You see pedestrians when you really look for them.
  • When you’re driving, take a break from your phone, be extra alert at intersections and be ready to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians.
  • When you’re walking, take extra care to help drivers see you: stay focused on the road and make eye contact.
  • Distraction and failing to yield are top factors in crashes with pedestrians. #KnowYourPartBC to drive smart
