DON'T MISS ALL THE LAUGHS BY BEING DISTRACTED

We've joined forces with the TAC again to ask Melburnians to stand up for pedestrian safety, and keep their Heads up, Phones down! 

​The month long campaign will be rewarding pedestrians who are paying attention, making them the real VIP - the ​Very Intelligent Pedestrians​.

Research shows up to 40% of pedestrians might be distracted by mobile phones when crossing the road which could lead to some pretty serious injuries. 

That's why we haver to make sure Festival-goers stay focused on their surroundings and not their mobile phones when getting around. Remember, don't miss the laughs this Comedy Festival - put your phone away when you're on the street!

See how TAC and its road safety partners are making roads safer for vulnerable road users here.
