Our Sydney Austrailia Hotels safety tips

Road safety in Sydney and Australia

Probably most people have heard of dangerous and scary things one might come across when travelling in Australia. However it's important for our Cheap Sydney accommodation visitors to keep things in perspective. There are highly publicised dangers like:

While its sensible for Sydney Austrailia hotels visitors to be aware of these creatures in their natural habitats, some other more common hazards are worth keeping in mind.

To put things in perspective, cheap Sydney accommodation visitors should consider the following government statistics:

Accidental causes of fatality in Austrailia
1984 -1994

So you can see that the most important time for cheap accomodation Australia visitors to take care is simply when crossing the road.

Yes that's correct. There is 4973/82=60 (SIXTY!) times more risk from crossing the street than from all the hazards listed above. In other words, of every 100 people who died in Australia from any of the causes listed above, 98.4% were involved in an accident crossing the street!

If you are a cheap accomodation Australia visitor, and especially

if the traffic in your home city drives on the right hand side of the road,

you need to take much more care than your average traffic-wise Sydneysider.

This is because in Sydney and Australia, we drive on the left hand side.

When crossing the street in Sydney and Australia, your natural instinct and ingrained habits will prompt you to check the traffic the same way you always do at home before stepping onto the roadway.

But in Sydney Australia where we drive on the opposite side of the street, the speeding cars and trucks will be coming from the opposite direction to what you are used to, and your habitual way of looking for approaching traffic will be in the wrong direction. This is how an accident can easily happen.

To cross safely, first look to the right, then look to the left and then look to the right again.

Give this your full attention before you arrive in Australia and throughout your stay at cheap accomodation Australia so you will be prepared to cross safely.

All of us, staff and management at Australian Sunrise Lodge, wish a safe and enjoyable visit to Sydney to all our accomodation guests, so in the interests of road safety, please remember:

look to the right, look to the left and look to the right again, before stepping onto the road

in Sydney and in all Australian states.
