10 Items to Teach Children about Pedestrian Safety

This checklist comes from the National Safe Kids Campaign and can be found at the following website, namely:

1. Do not cross the street alone if you're younger than 10 years old;
2. Stop at the curb before crossing the street;
3. Walk, don't run, across the street;
4. Cross at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks;
5. Look left, right, and left again before crossing;
6. Walk facing forward;
7. Make sure drivers see you before crossing in front of them;
8. Do not play in driveways, streets, parking lots or unfenced yards by the street;
9. Wear white clothing or reflectors when walking at night; and
10. Cross at least 10 feet in front of a school bus.
