For Pedestrians:

  • Cross at intersections and marked crosswalks.


  • Use pedestrian pushbutton and WAIT for signal to cross.


  • Before crossing, look left, right, then left again, and over your shoulder for turning vehicles.


  • Stay visible after dark and in bad weather with light-colored or reflective clothing.


  • Be predictable as a pedestrian. Cross streets at crosswalks or intersections whenever possible. This is where drivers expect pedestrians.


  • If a crosswalk or intersection is not available, locate a well-lit area, wait for a gap in traffic that allows you enough time to cross safely, and continue to watch for traffic as you cross.
