Safety: Road Safety Week Review

At Deliveroo, safety is taken seriously. Our priority is that you and others feel safe at all times when you’re on the road with us.

Here are the key things to remember when on the road.

Obey traffic lights and signals
Pass pedestrian crossings appropriately
Make sure your vehicle is fit for the road
Wear appropriate, reflective clothing and a protective helmet
Have working lights on your bicycle at all times
