The old adage – "Stop, look and listen before you cross the street; use your eyes, then your ears, before you use your feet" – is still a wise saying for pedestrians!

Every day in Quebec, seven pedestrians are injured in road accidents. In 2017, 69 pedestrians were killed and over 2,500 were injured in road accidents. The Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) is launching a new campaign this month aimed at making drivers and pedestrians aware of their safety.
