When crossing a road, remain on crosswalk whenever possible. If there is no crosswalk, walk on the shoulder and do your best to make sure cars can easily see you. By obeying traffic laws and being cautious of the conditions of the road, you can help prevent an unforeseen accident and keep yourself and others safe.
