Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, it is important to abide by all traffic laws and observe safety precautions. If you’re behind the wheel, always watch out for pedestrians. Slow down, prepare to stop, and be extra careful especially when driving through an intersection, school zones, parks, or residential areas. If you’re a pedestrian, always walk on a sidewalk or a crosswalk. If the road doesn’t have sidewalks, walk on the shoulder and face oncoming traffic. This way, you and the motorists have a better chance of seeing one another and react if a situation arises.
