Safety Tips for Pedestrians

  • Use sidewalks whenever they’re available. If there’s no sidewalk, walk on the left side of the road facing traffic.
  • Always cross at intersections or marked crosswalks. Look left, then right, then left again before proceeding.
  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. Never assume a driver sees you.
  • Be visible. Wear something light or reflective after dark.
  • Don’t be distracted by devices that take your eyes and ears off the road.
  • As a passenger, get in or out of a vehicle on the curbside of the street.
