Safety Tip of the week

Zebra Crossing - in South Africa, animals always have right of way on the road (though who would argue with elephants and rhinos, even if they didn't?)

Meanwhile in Victoria,

A Driver must not stop the vehicle on or partly on a children´┐Żs crossing, pedestrian crossing or marked foot crossing.

Exception

The applicant is not penalised for stopping the vehicle on a crosswalk if it is necessary to do so to view approaching traffic before completing a turn at an intersection).

However:

If more than one vehicle is queuing to make the turn, this exception applies only to the first vehicle in the queue.

Before stopping on the crosswalk, the applicant must take all reasonable care to ensure that no pedestrian has to take evasive action.
