Walking tips from Safe Routes to School:
— Walk on the sidewalk whenever possible.
— Look left, right, and left for traffic at crossings.
— Walk facing traffic, if there are no sidewalks.
— Cross at intersections.
— See and be seen. Do not use electronic devices while you walk. Pay attention to your surroundings.
— Make eye contact with drivers
— Parents - Practice walking or cycling to school with your child. Show them hazards to watch out for and show them the proper way to cross the street.
— Walk (or cycle) with a 'buddy'
