Cross the road to play on the phone? fine! ! Melbourne started to strengthen traffic regulation and supervision yesterday!
From the beginning of the week, the Melbourne CBD will have police "stalking" people who cross the road and use mobile phones when crossing the road. This is also part of the "Don't Do Your Dash" plan.
According to Transport Accident Commission data, so far this year, the number of pedestrian deaths has surged by 30%.
The police will mainly supervise people who cross the road badly, especially pedestrians at traffic lights and tram stations.
Pedestrians caught who violate traffic rules or who do not walk well will be fined A$74.
Detective Mark Rose said: "We don't want pedestrians to be injured or killed when they cross the road because of some unnecessary small things."
PS: The fine is 75 dollar cheaper than the fare evasion of 1 dollars!
