It’s a familiar sight – somebody walking across the road while stabbing at their mobile phone. Who has not felt a bit frustrated with the pedestrian who is so captivated by their device that they don’t look where they are going?

The fact is more pedestrians died on NSW roads in 2015 than 2014. There were 61 fatalities in 2015, compared to 41 in 2014, and they made up 17.5% of all deaths on the road. Sadly, 17-25 year olds have the second highest risk of death as pedestrians (after older pedestrians, 75 years and over).
