Pedestrian Safety is a Key Focus
“If only I’d been watching for pedestrians.” No Regrets When You DRIVE WITH CARE – Message targeted towards drivers.
Pedestrians are a vulnerable road user. Whether walking for enjoyment, exercise or engaged in work on the roadway, they need to be safe. Our goal is to increase driver awareness and education of pedestrian traffic safety. This tip card reminds motorists to:
- Stop for pedestrians crossing at every intersection.
- 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.
