Our Sydney Austrailia Hotels safety tips

Road safety in Sydney and Australia

Probably all visitors to our Sydney budget accommodation have heard of dangerous and scary things you might come across when travelling in Australia. Well known dangers like:
While these things are certainly dangerous for our Sydney Austrailia hotels visitors, some other more ordinary hazards are worth keeping in mind.

The following government statistics put things in perspective:

Dangers to our Sydney Austrailia hotels visitors.

So you can see that by far the biggest risk to our Sydney budget accommodation visitors is simply crossing the road.

Yes that's correct. You are 4973/82=60 times (that's 60 times!) more in danger from crossing the street that from all the other major dangers listed above. Put it another way, of every 100 people accidentally killed in Australia from the above causes, 98.4% will have been involved in an accident crossing the street!

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

If you are a Sydney Austrailia hotel visitor, and the traffic in your home city drives on the opposite side of the road to Sydney and Austrailia, where we drive on the left hand side, you are much more at risk from Sydneys cars and trucks that your average traffic-wise Sydneysider.

When crossing the street in Sydney and Austrailia, 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 and Austrailia 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 safety habits will have you checking the wrong direction for approaching traffic. This is how an accident can happen.

Give this some thought before arriving at our Sydney Austrailia hotel so you can be prepared to cross safely.

All of us, staff and management at Austrailian Sunrise Lodge, do our best for a safe and enjoyable visit to Sydney by all our accommodation guests, so in the interests of road safety, please, look right, look left and look right again, before stepping onto the road in Sydney and in all Austrailian cities, if your home city traffic drives on the right hand side of the road!
