Crosswalk safety is in everyone’s interest.
I trust this website has been of value and you learned a few things about crosswalk safety; about the need as a driver to be alert, and as a pedestrian to be visible, cautious and alert.
If everyone …
- respects and follows the laws – for example drivers staying within the speed limits – remember they are speed limits; not targets; yielding to pedestrians in or facing a crosswalk; and pedestrians not entering a crosswalk when the ‘don’t walk’ hand or countdown timer is illuminated
- avoids distractions – such as cell phones; texting etc., and
- is attentive – both when driving and when walking.
… there is a greater chance accidents will be avoided.
Please forward this site to others in order that they too can increase thier education of crosswalk safety. And remember to
… be Cautious … be Seen … be Safe
Yours in crosswalk safety,
