Steps in the public realm can be a bit of a trip hazard. Running down the length of a CBD arcade, shallow steps and inadequate warning tape gave way to a lot of tripping complaints.

So what to do? Make the hazard obvious as possible! You can't miss the giant yellow and black stripes as you go along your way. It also doubles as a seat, for those moments when you need to take a break.
