Pedestrian Safety Tips

As we spring forward toward spring and summer with more daylight hours for being outdoors…..more adults and children are out walking.

So a quick reminder on Pedestrian Safety Tips

Parents are the most important models of proper pedestrian behavior for children.

  • Cross streets safely. Cross at a corner, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. Do not assume that because you can see the driver, the driver can see you.
  • Look left, right and left again when crossing, and keep looking as you cross. Walk, do not run, across the street.
  • Walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible.
  • Be a safe pedestrian around cars. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up.
  • Parking lots can be especially dangerous! Newer electric cars are so quiet you may not even know they are running. Parents and kids should hold hands in parking lots and always be alert. Texting and walking is not safe!

Set pedestrian safety rules for your children.

  • Never allow children under age 10 to cross streets alone. Adult supervision is essential until you are sure a child has good traffic skills and judgment.
  • Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
  • Make sure children know to cross 10 feet in front of a school bus, never behind, and to wait for adults on the same side of the street as the school bus loading or unloading zone.
  • Teach your child never to run out into a street for a ball, a pet or any other reason.

Help create an environment that’s safe for pedestrians.

  • Make sure your child plays in safe places away from motor vehicles, such as yards, parks and playgrounds and never in the street. Fence off play areas from driveways and streets.
  • Buy clothing and accessories incorporating retro reflective materials for your family to wear at dawn and dusk, in the evening and during other low-light situations, such as rainy or foggy weather.
  • Check frequently for children when backing out of a driveway or a parking space.

Have a safe spring and summer!
