Share Our Streets - Pedestrian Distraction

The second part of the City of Melbourne's Share Our Streets campaign focussed on Pedestrian Distraction. During mornings and lunchtimes from March through to May 2014 we let loose a few distractible (and distracted) characters on Swanston St and St Kilda Rd. 

Consumed by their, phone calls, their maps and their 'devices' (albeit, a little out of date) these two made sure the precious attention of pedestrians in complex environments was captured, making room for the delivery of a tip card and message from the Share Our Streets staff, 'thankyou for paying attention!".

Stay tuned for video of this program, and remember to remember where you are.

The guided bike tours were offered free to newly arrived students, showing some great destinations to relax from busy student life and also how to navigate safely in city traffic.
