Finding the safest place to cross is not always easy, especially if you are talking to your mates, listening to your iPod and texting.
Time out!! Stop what you are doing!
- Find that safe place to cross and check that the cars have stopped before you try to cross the road.
- Did you know that you are more likely to be hit by a car on a pedestrian crossing than anywhere else?!?
- Check the cars have stopped before you cross.
When waiting to cross or walking on the pavement don't go too close to the road. It's easy to be hit by a cars wing mirror or have your foot run over.
Think - Find a safe place to cross
Stop - Stand on the pavement and look
Look - and Listen out for traffic
Wait - until it's safe to cross
Walk - straight across the road, look and listen too
Be road safe!
