    Survivor guide: Abbey Road crossing


    Made famous by the Beatles in 1969, when the band posed here for their ‘Abbey Road’ album’s cover image, the Abbey Road Crossing in North London, at St John’s Wood, is visited by thousands of tourists wishing to recreate the pose every year.

    Abbey Road dangers

    Unfortunately, the continual struggle of drivers trying to make their way over the crossing in spite of the constant, seemingly endless, stream of tourists occasionally lead to drivers getting frustrated and forcing their way ahead. As a result, visitors sometimes find themselves sustaining accidental injuries by road traffic accident.

    Preventing Abbey Road mishaps

    In order to stay safe and avoid being hit by a car, visitors to Abbey Road should observe a few simple safety rules:

    • Never step into the road in front of approaching vehicles
    • Never assume vehicles will stop when they see you in the road
    • While waiting for your ‘turn to pose’, stay away from the edge of the pavement to prevent being pushed into the road and in front of moving vehicles

    If you see a vehicle approaching, move out of the way even if you have not finished taking your picture (you can always step back onto the crossing when it is safe to do so). Basically, you should approach this crossing like any other zebra crossing, namely with great care and attention to other road users. Remember that, as much as getting this shot may mean to you, it is never worth taking your life into your hands and risk getting hurt in an accident on the road.

    Unfortunate events on Abbey Road

    Should you sustain a personal injury in an accident on the Abbey Road crossing through no fault of your own, like being hit by an impatient driver or pushed into the road by other tourists, you could be eligible for personal injury compensation.
