Tips for Pedestrians

Key Tips:

Other Tips:

  • Stand clear of buses, hedges, parked cars, and other obstacles before crossing a street, so drivers can see you.
  • Cross in well lit areas at night, or wear brightly colored clothing or reflective materials. Carrying a flashlight at night can also make you more visible to drivers.
  • Watch out for vehicles which are backing up in parking lots, driveways, or on the street. Look for backup lights and listen for vehicle noise.
  • Don’t walk after consuming alcohol or other drugs. Drunk walking increases your chances of being struck.
  • Keep distractions to a minimum – do not use cell phones or headphones when you are crossing a street.
  • Always walk on the sidewalk; if there is no sidewalk on either side of the street, or if the sidewalk is inaccessible, walk facing vehicles.
  • Proceed carefully when crossing, never run into the street.
