For drivers:

  • Always obey crosswalk signals and yield signals
  • Don’t drive above the speed limit
  • Slow down in areas where there tends to be a large concentration of pedestrians

For pedestrians:

  • Never jaywalk – always cross the street at designated crosswalks
  • If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic
  • Look left, right, and left again before crossing the street
  • Watch out for turning vehicles
  • Never assume a vehicle is going to stop for you
  • Be aware of your surroundings – avoid wearing headphones while walking
