CROSSWALK SAFETY TIPS
Always use marked crosswalks.
Obey pedestrian signals. Look left-right-left.
Make eye contact with the driver.
Look before walking past stopped cars, to make sure other lanes are clear.
Observe school zone speed limits, and watch for pedestrians and cyclists.
Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and at corners.
Come to a complete stop if pedestrians are preparing to cross, and wait until they finish crossing.
Never pass another car that is slowing or stopped at a crosswalk.
