Keep these tips in mind when you need to cross the street:

  • Stop, look, and listen for cars. Always look both ways at least twice before crossing!
  • Be patient. Let all the cars pass first before you start to cross.
  • Walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Cross the street at a corner or crosswalk.
  • If there’s a stoplight, wait for all the cars to stop before you cross.
  • Never step out into the street from behind a parked car or anything else that might keep a driver from seeing you.

Remember, sometimes drivers do not obey the traffic laws and do not stop when they are supposed to. Follow these tips and let’s stay safe together!
