LIFE IN PERTH, AUSTRALIA, TRAVEL, CATS, FURNITURE UPCYCLING and MURALS
Strange that you need such warnings/signs.Though, yes, reminds me of that mother on her bike who checked if the road is clear (it was) and let her 2-3 year old son just cycle through. How is he supposed to learn to stop and take a look if a vehicle is crossing?
People shouldn't need these signs, I think we should all be taught the right way to cross the roads, but who knows, maybe some people need to be reminded.
In the second sign, yes of course check, but the onus is on the truck to stop and a pedestrian should be able to freely walk across the crossing without having to check. It is not right that pedestrians should have to check. Our governments are trying to put everything back on pedestrians, and it is not right.
I agree with you Andrew, we shouldn't have to worry about crossing roads on the zebra crossing, but then some drivers could be distracted, so better check before crossing. Just recently I have had to stop twice in the middle of a crossing because two drivers just drove by when it was red for them! It could have resulted in a bad accident. Distracted drivers...
Muito interessante.Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.AndarilharDedais de Francisco e Idalisa O prazer dos livros
Obrigada Francisco, boa semana tambem para si.
...great signs, but didn't we all learn this when we were small children? Thanks Sami for checking in.
Quite right Tom, we should all have learned this with our parents :)
Hello, these are important signs. Drivers should slow down at the crosswalks. Wishing you a happy day!
Thank you Eileen, have a lovely day too.
The ONE thing I like about these signs is, they rhyme, which makes them easy to remember. Like the "don't drown, turn around" when a road is impassible with water. Some things should be obvious, but OBVIOUSLY, they aren't! Great sign finds, though.
Thanks Elizabeth :)
Dearest Sami,Clear signs and using the bright yellow to attract full attention!Hugs,Mariette
Yes, they do attract our attention with that colour. Thanks Mariette.
I just go through life assuming that every driver on the road is a bloody idiot and proceed based on that.
You might have the right attitude William, even though we shouldn't have to behave that way.
These signs provide good advice. Traffic can be dangerous.
Thanks Taken for granted.
Then add people that are on their phones and then there is even more chance of injury or worse.Have a fabulous day, Sami. ♥
Yes, I think those signs are maybe aimed at those that are looking at their phones instead of the road.
With these signs, I imgaine there are still some people who will not see them or read them. Have a wonderful day, Sami.
Those will probably be looking down at their phones, lol. Thanks Bill.
It is good to remind people. These yellow & black signs get noticed well.
Thanks for your visit Riitta.
A catchy phrase and a good reminder!
That is a great sign!
Good signs Sami, it does worry me a lot when people cross, especially when they are wearing headphones and not concentrating ✨
Not a good way to go.
Certainly not Adam.
E olha para a rua e não para o telemóvel, acrescento eu.
Pois seria ideal lembrar isso às pessoas.
Those are good and very useful signs. We need them on our university campus!
Here inside the university campus cars can only drive at 40km.
Have also seen some for the new trams.
Thanks Jim :)
