DRUM - - Ed's Note -

An alarm­ing num­ber of pedes­tri­ans are killed in road ac­ci­dents ev­ery day.

Mo­torists mustn’t speed in ar­eas with­out for­mal points of cross­ing. Do not take it for granted that pedes­tri­ans can see you, and al­ways be on the look­out for small chil­dren and an­i­mals – es­pe­cially around schools and places where there are lots of chil­dren.

Pedes­tri­ans must al­ways be alert when walk­ing. Make eye con­tact with mo­torists to en­sure they can see you be­fore cross­ing the road. Small chil­dren must never be al­lowed to walk alone or cross roads on their own. Do it for your own safety and that of other road users. MATOME KUBU, AR­CA­DIA
