Bike riding is groovy, it makes your legs look great…

Cyclist Puppet

Not caring

  • Passing on the left when a driver is trying to make a left turn.
  • Deliberately moving into the path of another road user, including moving into the path of a pedestrian on the footpath.
  • Riding in zones where bikes aren’t allowed.
  • Not being patient – not waiting for the lights to change to green before heading off.

Your motorbike can take you anywhere…

Not caring

  • Riding up the middle of two lanes of slow moving traffic, other drivers will not expect you to be there and may pull in front of you.
  • Cutting in front of larger vehicles such as trucks, it takes them longer to slow down and stop.
  • Tailgating – it frustrates and annoys other road users.
Motorcyclist Puppet

Walking and jogging is healthy for you…

Pedestrian Puppet

Not caring

  • Staying on a crossing on a road for longer than necessary or deliberately walking in front of traffic.
  • Walking on the road when there is a dedicated footpath.
  • Crossing at traffic lights if the pedestrian light is flashing or is red.
  • Crossing the road within 20 metres of a pedestrian crossing or J walking.
  • Walking past a ‘no pedestrians sign’.
  • Causing a traffic hazard by moving into the path of a driver.

We’re all in a hurry when we get behind the wheel…

Not caring

  • Opening your car door without looking for a pedestrian, bike rider or motorbike rider.
  • Cutting in front of a cyclist when turning at an intersection.
  • Parking in a bike lane.
  • Blocking intersections and refusing to let another vehicle merge into your lane.
  • Not allowing buses to enter the flow of traffic or change lanes.
