Pedestrian Safety Tips

    1. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing.

    2. Cross in the crosswalk or at the nearest cross street.

    3. Follow the pedestrian signal, not the overhead traffic signal.

    4. Do not begin to cross the street once the red hand
      flashes on the pedestrian signal.

    5. Wear visible clothing.

    6. Walk facing traffic!

    7. Be alert-especially at Right-turn-on-red intersections.

    8. Look both ways before crossing.

Tips For Motorists

    1. Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks (marked or unmarked)!

    2. Be cautious in areas that draw children such as schools.
    3. Don't speed or run red lights.
