November 1, 2018

Many children walk to and from school, and it’s crucial that they understand that safety practices for walking are just as important as those for riding on a school bus or in a car. Unintentional pedestrian injuries are the second leading cause of death in the United States for children ages 5 to 14, according to data presented on To prevent pedestrian injuries, children can follow some simple guidelines

  • Always cross streets at corners where there are traffic signals and designated crosswalks.
  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Always walk on sidewalks. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic.
  • Always look left, right and left again before crossing the street.
  • Be aware of cars that are turning or backing up.
  • Never run out into the street or cross between parked cars.
  • Wear reflective materials to make sure that you can be seen.
