Is walking risky? Tell RAA about your walking habits in the Risky Walks survey

Our inaugural 2023 Risky Walks survey is now closed. View the results.

Have your say on the walks around your way in the RAA and Walking SA Risky Walks Survey.

Often when people think of exercise, they think of puffing away on a treadmill or lifting weights until their muscles give out.

We forget walking is a great choice, and an option many of us take for granted every day. Studies have shown that walking can reduce the risk of illness, such as heart disease and diabetes, and it’s low impact so a great activity for those with painful joints. On top of that, it’s fantastic opportunity to reap the benefits of “green” exercise – fresh air, blue sky and being in nature. Not only that – it’s good for the environment. Now with milder weather and sunnier days, October is the perfect month to Step into Spring.

At RAA, they’ve been thinking about South Australians walking habits. Could they be walking more? Do they have safety concerns? Are the footpaths not up to standard?

RAA’s Senior Traffic Engineer Matthew Vertudaches wants to know what’s stopping you from walking?

Let us know your thoughts in the RAA Risky Walks survey, created in conjunction with Walking SA. The survey closes 5pm Tuesday 7 November and by having your say, you go in the draw to win one of three $50 gift cards.
