TIPS FOR SHARING THE ROAD
• Watch for pedestrians near the roadway
• Stop for pedestrians using crosswalks and intersections
• Slow down or stop for pedestrians when making turns
• Use care if another car slows/stops for a pedestrian
• Look for pedestrians walking in road without sidewalks
• Follow all signals, signs and stripes at crosswalks
• Take extra care driving near schools and playgrounds
• Never speed or park where pedestrians use crosswalks
• Share the road. It’s your responsibility to look out for others
