Pedestrian Safety is a Key Focus for Your Community Traffic Safety Team
“If only I’d been watching for pedestrians.” No Regrets When You DRIVE WITH CARE – Pedestrian Safety message targeted towards drivers.
As part of our pedestrian traffic safety awareness and education, this tip card reminds drivers to:
- Stop for pedestrians crossing at every intersection and in crosswalks.
- Stop before tuning right on red.
- Look in all directions before making a turn.
- Do not pass a vehicle that is stopping for pedestrians.
- Obey the traffic laws, signals and speed limits.
Posters distributed include both bicycle and pedestrian safety. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office promoted this safety message on large, digital billboards. The City of St. Augustine, Police Department and Sheriff’s Office joined forces in St. Johns County to promote these biking, walking and driving safe messages, including posting billboards in high traffic areas around the county.
While drivers are the primary target of our pedestrian safety messages, we also include safety tips for walkers of all ages with our “Adventures in Walking Safely”:
- Always cross the street at a corner or crosswalk.
- Look left, right, and left again before crossing.
- Stay on sidewalks.
- Walk on the far left, facing traffic if there is no sidewalk.
- Never run out into the street or enter from between parked cars.
- Be bright, be seen.
- Don’t walk alone or in the dark.
These double-sided bookmarks are distributed to libraries throughout our community with safety tips for drivers and walkers..
