Tips for safe walking around cars:

  • Stay alert - Don't be distracted by electronic devices, including smart phones, MP3 players, headphones, earbuds and other devices that take your eyes (and ears) off the road.
  • Always cross within the crosswalk when available.
  • Use a 'walk' signal at intersections when available.
  • Always look LEFT, then RIGHT, then LEFT again before starting to cross
  • If you are in a crosswalk when the orange 'don't walk' signal starts flashing, complete your crossing.
  • Continue to watch for traffic while you cross
  • Be predictable - Do not cross in the middle of a block or between parked cars
  • Be alert for turning vehicles and those that may not stop at stop signs or traffic signals.
  • Make eye contact with drivers when possible - make your presence known to drivers, and don't assume that drivers see you.
  • Always walk on sidewalks when available; if not available, walk facing oncoming traffic.
  • Avoid alcohol or drugs when walking - they impair your judgment and coordination. Almost 50% of pedestrian collisions involve alcohol.
