Pedestrian Safety Tips

You may be "screened" from the driver’s view by another car, a bus, or even a bush or a mailbox.

  • Make sure all cars have stopped before you step off the curb.
  • If a car has stopped, don’t assume that an overtaking car will also stop. That driver may not even know that you’re there.
  • Always stop at the outside edge of any "screen" and look around it for any cars that might be coming.
  • Be especially alert if you step in front of a stopped bus because, due to its size, it’s even harder for an overtaking driver to see you.
