  • Frequency of pedestrian travel

  • Level of alertness

  • Following safe practices

  • Population of walkers


Location l.jpg
Location

  • Parking lot

  • Neighborhood road

  • Highway

  • Bus Stop

  • Sidewalk (suburban or downtown)

  • Crosswalk

  • Hiking Trail

  • Mall


Conditions l.jpg
Conditions

    • How tall are you?

    • Are you in a driver’s blind spot?

    • Can you see the drivers face?

    • What is the drivers state of mind?

Pedestrian practices l.jpg
Pedestrian Practices

  • Alone? With Friends? Other people around?

  • Distracted? Tired?

  • Do you walk this route a lot? (good & bad)

Statistics

  • 70 percent of pedestrians killed in 2007 were males.

  • Almost three out of every four pedestrian fatalities occur in urban areas (72 percent).

  • Nearly half (48 percent) of pedestrian fatalities occurred on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.


Walking safety l.jpg
Walking Safety

  • Walk on the Sidewalk

  • Stay on the sidewalk and crosswalks. Avoid walking in traffic where there are no sidewalks or crosswalks. If you have to walk on a road that does not have sidewalks, walk facing traffic (i.e. walk on the left side of the road).

  • Cross at Intersections

  • Most people are hit by cars when they cross the road at places other than intersections.

  • Look left, right, and left for traffic

  • Stop at the curb and look left, right, and left again for traffic. Stopping at the curb signals drivers that you intend to cross. Cross in marked crosswalks and obey the signal.

  • Don’t Hitch hike.

Walking Safety

  • See and Be Seen

  • Drivers need to see you to avoid you. Stay out of the driver's blind spot. Make eye contact with drivers when crossing busy streets.

  • Wear bright colors or reflective clothing if you are walking near traffic at night. Carry a flashlight when walking in the dark.

  • Do not let kids play near traffic or cross the street by themselves. Kids are small, and drivers may not see them if they run into the street.

  • Watch kids

  • Children should not cross streets by themselves or be allowed to play or walk near traffic. Kids are small, unpredictable, and cannot judge vehicle distances and speeds.

  • When kids get older, teach them three things to do before they cross the street: 1) Try to cross at a corner with a traffic light. 2) Stop at the curb. 3) Look left, right, then left again to make sure no cars are coming.

  • Hold children’s hands in parking lots & don’t let them play in parking lots.
