First find a safe place to cross Always try to use a well-lit road, a footbridge, pedestrian crossing, patrolled crossing or an island in the middle of the road. If none of these are around, choose somewhere awayfrom parked cars, bends, tops of hills and road junctions so that drivers can see you clearly. 2 Stop just before you get to the kerb Don't get too close to the edge 3 Look all around for traffic and listen Don't get distracted by your mobile phone and take out those earphones - you need your ears and your eyes to look around and listen out for traffic. 4 If traffic is coming, let it pass Don't rush - cars can be approaching faster than you realise. 5 When it is safe, go straight across the road - do not run When the road is clear and it's safe, go straight across, keep looking and listening . Stay safe.
