WATCH FOR ME
The classic advice - look both ways before crossing the street - still serves us best! But when it comes to staying safe as a pedestrian – whether walking, running, in a wheelchair, or pushing a stroller – it’s all about being aware of your surroundings.
SAFETY TIPS FOR PEDESTRIANS
Pedestrians have the right of way over cars on streets when crossing at intersections, and they must obey traffic signals and signs at those intersections.
If there’s no crosswalk, pedestrians should only cross a street at a right angle to the curb. It’s illegal to cross the street or an intersection diagonally.
Avoid walking or running on roadways with heavy traffic. If sidewalks are not available, take caution and walk facing traffic.
