9 Tips for Safe Walking

 

Follow these tips to stay safe when you are walking outside. 

  1. NEVER HITCHHIKE OR ACCEPT RIDES FROM STRANGERS. 

  2. Look left, right, and left before crossing a street. 

  3. Watch for traffic. A driver may not see you.

  4. Wait for the green light to walk. DO NOT cross on the red or yellow light.

  5. When the traffic light shows a picture of a person walking it is OK to walk.

  6. If you think you are being followed, walk to where there are lots of people like a shop or a station and ask for help.

SIDEWALKS

  1. Walk on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the side of the road facing traffic.

CROSSWALKS

  1. Cross streets at crosswalks. If you are inside a crosswalk, cars should stop for you.

BRIGHT CLOTHES

  1. Always wear bright clothing. Use a flashlight at night. NEVER walk alone at night.
