Pedestrian Safety Rules

  • ALWAYS follow these rules and be extra alert in rainy or foggy weather

    Cross only at corners so drivers can see you.

    Always use a crosswalk when it is available. Remember, painted lines can't stop cars.

    Cross only on the new green light so you have time to cross safely.

    Use the push-button when possible and cross with the "walk" sign only.

    Look all ways before crossing the street to see cars, pedestrians and bicyclists.

    When crossing, watch for cars that are turning left or right.

    Never cross the street from between parked cars. Drivers can't see you.

    Walk on the left side of the road, facing traffic, if sidewalks are not provided, so you can see oncoming cars.
