There are so many distractions these days, such as personal music players, headphones and cell phones; and yet these things can cause accidents. When you need to cross a road, make sure you are as aware as possible, not only looking but listening too. A cyclist is much quieter than a car, but can also cause considerable damage if they hit you.

This quiz tests your knowledge of road safety when walking, cycling and riding in a car.
