Walk Smart

  1. Use sidewalks wherever possible when walking to the bus stop or school.
  2. Always stop at the curb, or any driveway or alley which crosses a sidewalk.
  3. Look left-right-left to make sure the road is clear before you cross the street.
  4. Walk on the left facing traffic, if you must walk in the road.
  5. Always cross at the corner.
  6. On corner’s where pedestrian crossing signals are available, use as directed.
  7. Watch out for vehicles backing out of driveways and parking spaces.
  8. Be safe, be seen. Look the driver in the eye to know that he sees you.
  9. Where crossing guards are available, follow their signals and directions.

Ride Smart
