In a bid to improve pedestrian safety, Eurobodalla Shire Council has been installing ‘Look out before you step out’ stickers across the shire.

The stickers have been installed in high-pedestrian areas to advise people where it is safest to cross.

The council’s road safety officer Kate McDougall said at least 66 pedestrians were killed on NSW roads last year alone.

“These stickers serve as a simple reminder to look out before you step out, as it could save your life,” Ms McDougall said.

“The contrasting colours also serve as a visual prompt to attract the attention of people looking down at their phones or mobile device.”

The council’s road safety and community development teams recently installed 34 stickers in Narooma and Dalmeny, primarily targeting visitor hotspots.
