Public Safety Tip of the Day:

Pedestrian Safety Continued:

  • Remember: Telephone poles, utility boxes and parked vehicles block on-coming drivers ability to see you.
  • Arrive early for buses and trains, but not so early that you have a long waiting time. Stay out of the street and to wait for the bus or light rail train to come to a complete stop before approaching the street.
  • Avoid walking while listening to an IPod or MP-3, Walkman, Discman, etc. with earbuds or headphones; this cuts down your awareness of what’s happening around you and impedes your ability to hear oncoming traffic.
  • Develop a plan before you see trouble. Crossing a street or entering a store may get you out of a potentially bad situation.
  • If a car follows you or beckons you while you are walking, do not approach it. Instead, turn and quickly walk the opposite direction.
  • Wear clothing and shoes that you can move freely and quickly in, especially when walking or waiting for the bus or Light Rail.
  • Carry minimal items; overloading yourself can make you appear vulnerable.
  • Always hold a child by the hand while crossing the street and remember, WALK don’t run.

Thank you
