Is being distracted worth your life? A safety message from Luas
Everyday thousands of pedestrians and hundreds of Luas trams use busy Dublin Streets. Some pedestrians take risks, they don’t wait for a walk signal or they dash across the tracks without looking. Every day these pedestrians risk getting seriously hurt or killed. Pedestrians can get distracted by their mobile phone, listening to music on their headphones and by rushing and not looking where they are going! Is being in a hurry or distracted worth your life?
Luas has recorded a number of pedestrian contacts with moving trams. Check out this video http://bit.ly/LuasPedestrianSafety and watch what Luas Driver’s see when a pedestrian walks out in front of a tram.
Pedestrians remember to Watch Out and Listen Out for Luas. It’s important to familiarise yourself with Luas Pedestrian Signage and Pavement Markings when walking around Luas. For more information see http://www.luas.ie/safe-walking-around-luas/
