Work Out Visibly

Be Seen, Be Safe is the message coming from the Road Accident Action Group (RAAG) for those exercising on or near our roads, particularly during the darker winter months. Early mornings and evenings are the hardest time for motorists to safely navigate around pedestrians and cyclists, however there is an easy solution.

Joggers, walkers, cyclists, and anyone on the roads can increase their visibility by wearing fluorescent and/or reflective clothing while exercising at these times. This alerts motorists to their presence and greatly improves their safety. It can be as easy as adding reflective stickers to their helmets or shoes, wearing a fluoro/reflective vest, flashing lights and any other similar items.

The Work Out Visibly safety initiative is a project of the Road Accident Action Group and is now in its third year. Expanding on previous years campaigns, RAAG has secured funding support from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund, Queensland Government, which allowed the purchase of around nine thousand safety items to give out the public. These items have been given out at various events running throughout the region during the winter months in 2022 & 2023.
