Safe Behaviors for Your Children
- Always look both ways before crossing the street. Teach your children this routine: look left, right, and left again. Keep looking both ways as you cross, and always walk – never run.
- When you are walking on a sidewalk or a path along the street, you should walk facing oncoming traffic. If there are no sidewalks, walk as far to the left as possible.
- Make sure your children recognize and understand traffic signals in their area.
Safe Behaviors for You
- If your child is under the age of ten, walk across the street with him or her.
- If the conditions are low-light or dark, have your child use a flashlight. You may also consider adding reflectors or retro-reflective material to your child’s clothes.
- Provide boundaries regarding where your child plays. Do not allow him to play in unfenced yards, parking lots, driveways, or streets.
