Street Smarts

by Mrs. Blaharski

Follow these rules to be safe while you walk.

Stay on the sidewalk!

The road is for drivers, and the sidewalk is for walkers. Keep away from the traffic and stay with others who are moving slower.

Watch out for other drivers!

A driver has a lot to watch out for while driving. He or she might be distracted, too, by the radio or other people in the car.

Look both ways before crossing!

Be sure nothing is headed your way. Sometimes traffic is moving too quickly to stop in time for you.
