Tips for Crossing a Crosswalk Safely

  • Before crossing a crosswalk always look left then right and then left again before entering the street at any marked or unmarked crosswalk
  • Never run across the street without checking first
  • Be alert and do not look at phones or have headphones on when crossing the street
  • If you are out for a jog or walk wear noticeable colors to make sure you are easily seen
  • Put on lights and reflective gear if out at night
  • Do not jaywalk and only use sidewalks and crosswalks
  • Always initiate eye contact with drivers before walking in front of their car to ensure they have noticed you
  • You are not a pedestrian when you are riding bike so dismount your bike and walk it across the street in the crosswalk
