Walk safely

Some people are put off walking because they're worried about being safe, but by taking a few precautions we can all feel safe while we walk...

  • Choose routes that are well-used, and well-lit if you walk at night.
  • Know where you're going - if you don't know the area well, take a map or leaflet.
  • Be prepared to change your route if you feel unsafe for any reason.
  • Take a travel pass or some change in case you need to use public transport.
  • Take a mobile phone and/or tell someone where you've gone if you're going on a long walk.
  • If you're wearing headphones, make sure you can hear traffic and are aware of everything that's going on around you.
  • Take care on busy roads and road crossings, and paths used by cyclists.
