Pedestrian Safety Tips

Be safe and Be Seen

• Wear bright/light colored clothing and reflective materials.

• Carry a flashlight when walking at night.

• Cross the street in a well-lit area at night.

• Stand clear of buses, hedges, parked cars and other obstacles before crossing so drivers can see you.

Be Alert

• Walk on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk towards oncoming traffic.

• Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street.

• Be alert to vehicle reverse lights and parked cars.

Be Careful at Crossings

• If possible, cross streets at marked crosswalks or intersections.

• Obey traffic signals, for example WALK/DON’T WALK signs.

• Look left, right and left again before crossing the street.

• Watch for turning vehicles. Make sure the driver sees you and will stop for you.

• Don’t wear headphones or talk on a cell phone while crossing the street.

• Visually clear all lanes you are crossing before you step onto the street.
