Pedestrian Safety

April 2016


Look all ways before you cross the street

  • STOP at the edge of the street, look left, then right, then left again for vehicles before crossing the street, and continue doing so, until you have reached the other side.

When crossing the street at traffic lights or a crosswalk

  • Before stepping out into the street, you should always look over your shoulder for vehicles that may be turning. Wait until the vehicle has come to a complete stop before venturing into the street.

Keep away from parked cars

  • The danger of crossing the street in between parked cars is that you may not see the vehicle coming, or the driver may not see you.
  • When walking in parking lots, or past driveways, be sure to look for backup lights. If the driver does not see you and indicate for you to proceed, then just wait for them to get out of the way.
