Keeping safe

Walking and riding are great ways to get around New Plymouth.

If you regularly ride or walk, high visibility and reflective bag covers are freely available to help you Be Seen. These can be collected from the NPDC Civic Centre and community libraries.

There are times we need to take extra care:

  • After dusk
  • Before dawn
  • When the sun is lower in the sky causing sun strike for drivers, and
  • At intersections

Make sure you take extra care and keep safe by being bright and visible on roads and paths.
