Pedestrian and Driver Reminders

Warmer months bring more people walking, biking and using alternative means of transportation. Please take a moment to review the safety to both drivers and pedestrians. 

You can download a flyer for your school, business or family. 


Pedestrian and Drivers- Be Nice and Look Twice


Remember

  • Pedestrians have the right-of-way at all intersections and marked crosswalks.
  • Jaywalking is against the law

 Pedestrians Look Out

  • Before stepping off a curb look left, look right, and look left again over your shoulder.
  • It is the pedestrian's responsibility to yield to cars when crossing a road without crosswalks.
  • If the "Don't Walk" signal is flashing, finish crossing, but don't start to cross.
  • STOP at the intersection! Look over your shoulder for cars turning. When all is clear, walk straight across the street, not on a diagonal.

 Motorists Look Out

  • STOP before crosswalks and the line that marks them. Cars do not belong in crosswalks, pedestrians do.
  • Motorists must "look out" for drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists.
  • Turning vehicles "must yield" to pedestrians crossing on the green light.

 Pedestrian Safety Tips

  • Avoid walking alone if you can.
  • Wear reflective clothing if you must walk at night.
  • Always walk facing traffic.
  • Always use crosswalks where provided.
  • Stop, Look, and Listen, then check twice.
  • Always follow traffic control devices. (Walk, Don't Walk signs)
  • Always be alert to traffic and your surroundings.
  • Check for traffic before crossing, even if the sign says walk.
