Stop For Pedestrians in Cross Walks with toddler

Safety Tips for Motorists

  • Yield for pedestrians at crosswalks and intersections - it’s the law.
  • Do not block crosswalks when stopping at intersections.
  • Always look out for pedestrians, especially before turning at a green light or making a right turn on red.
  • Look out for pedestrians everywhere, at all times. Very often pedestrians are not walking where they should be.
  • Slow down and be prepared to stop when turning or otherwise entering a crosswalk.
  • Never pass vehicles stopped at a crosswalk. They are stopped to allow pedestrians to cross the street.
  • Follow the speed limit, especially around pedestrians.
