HOW TO CROSS THE ROAD SAFELY

 

WHILE WALKING

• Walk only on the pavement or footpath.

• If there is no pavement, walk on the right hand side of the road so that you can see the traffic coming towards you.

• Walk one behind the other at turns, if there is a heavy traffic.

• Be extra careful if you can't see the road far ahead.

• Be careful when crossing cycles, rickshaws and carts. They might be traveling slowly but they do not have efficient braking system and can cause serious injuries.

• If you are walking with a younger child, always hold his or her hand while walking on the road.

• Try to walk in the centre of the pavement. Someone might suddenly open the car doors.

• Do not behave in the street as you do in the playground.

• If a friend calls from the other side of the road, never hurry, check traffic first.

• Do not challenge or encourage friends to do anything risky on the road.

WALKING ATNIGHT

• Be visible

• Always wear bright clothing at night

• Try to avoid going out in bad weather.

HOW TO CROSS THE ROAD SAFELY

A. Think First - Plan

• Find the safest place to cross the road.

• If available, cross the road at a zebra crossing, traffic light crossings or at traffic islands or where there is a police officer.

• Wait on the pavement until the traffic has completely stopped.

• If not available, choose a place where you can see clearly along the roads in all directions, and where drivers can see you.

• Never cross on turns.

b. Stop

• Stand on the pavement little way back from the edge. You should be away from the traffic but still be able to see all around. Even if there is no pavement stand at a little distance from the edge.

• Don't hurry, give yourself time and have a good look all round.

c. Watch and Listen

• Look for traffic in all directions and listen.

• When it's safe, walk directly across the road.

• Keep looking & listening while crossing.

• Never run.

d. Wait until it’s Safe

• Wait patiently and let the traffic pass.

• Cross when there is a safe gap and you are sure there is enough time.

• Don't cross if you are not sure.

CROSSING THE ROAD WHERE VEHICLES ARE PARKED

• Avoid crossing between parked cars

• If there is nowhere else to cross: choose a place where there is enough space between two cars

• Make sure no car is about to move out of the parking - look for drivers in the cars, lights and listen for engines.

• Ensure that you can easily get to the other side of the road.

• Walk to the outside edge of the cars and stop.

• Look on both sides for traffic.

CROSSING ROAD WITH A MEDIAN

• Some roads have an island or a median in the middle.

• Treat each half of the road as a separate crossing.

• Wait on the island or median, observe and then cross.

CROSSING AT A ZEBRA CROSSING

• If there is a zebra crossing, always use it.

• Wait on the pavement near the edge and wait for all the traffic to stop before you start to cross.

• After traffic has completely stopped from both sides, walk across on the black and white stripes.

• Keep looking all round and listening because a driver might not have seen you.

• If it is wet, cars would take more time to stop.

CROSSING WHERE THERE IS AN ISLAND ON THE ROAD

• Mostly traffic flows in one direction where there is an island on the road.

• Treat each half of the crossing as separate crossing.

• Watch out for overtaking vehicles.

• Do not assume that vehicles will stop.

• Check that the vehicles have stopped before you cross the road.

SCHOOL CROSSING MANAGED BY POLICE OR TRAFFIC MARSHALLS

• When school crossing is managed by police officers or volunteers, wait until they signal to you to cross the road.

• Always cross in front of them and obey their instructions.

CROSSING ONE-WAY ROADS

• Check the direction in which the traffic is going.

• Traffic will be flowing in more than one lane

• Do not cross until it is safe to cross the whole road.

SAFETY TIPS FOR CHILDREN WHILE CROSSING ROADS

• Cross quickly – do not linger or play in the street.

• When walking on sidewalks, be aware of driveways and alleys from which cars may emerge.

• When walking down a street with no sidewalks, walk as near to the edge of the road as possible, facing traffic. Bright colored clothing increases visibility, but when walking/biking near dusk reflective tape should be used on jackets, backpacks, bikes, etc.

• First and foremost, set a good example by always following the traffic safety rules yourself. Children learn by example.

• Children should look to see that drivers are aware of them. Making eye contact with a driver is a good way to know whether a driver is aware that someone is about to cross the road.

• Teach children the meaning of traffic signs. Stop at all stop signs, red lights, and obey traffic signals. When the intersection has crossing signals, only cross when the walk signal is lit.

• There are many traffic safety tips to share with your children to keep them safe when you can’t be with them. These tips may seem a bit trite, but they bear repeating (and repeating and repeating and repeating for kids).

ROUNDABOUTS & INTERSECTIONS

• Always give way to traffic coming from your right.

• Be cautious of the vehicles turning in front of you.

RIDING IN CAR/JEEP/MICRO

• Always wear the seatbelts.

• Never lean or wave out of the window. Never throw or hang anything out.

• Do not block the driver's view in the mirror.

• Never distract the driver by talking to him, shouting or playing about in the car. It is very important for the driver to concentrate on the road.

• Open doors or windows only when your parent or guardian asks you to open.

• Use the door on the pavement side.

RIDING IN BUSES

• While waiting for a bus, stand on the pavement. Do not play around at the bus stops.

• Wait for your turn, allow the people to get off the bus before you get on.

• Do not push other passengers.

• If you have to cross the road after getting off the bus, wait for the bus to go first.

• Have a safe place to wait for your bus, away from traffic and the street.

• Stay away from the bus until it comes to a complete stop and the driver signals you to enter.

• Use the handrail when getting on or off the bus.

• Keep seated with feet out of the aisle.

• Never put head, arms or hands out of the window.

• Do NOT stand up until the bus comes to a complete stop.

• Be aware of the street traffic around you.

• Cross in front of the bus, never behind, and be sure the driver of the bus can see you.

• Never stop, turn back, or reach under the bus.

• Be aware of the street traffic around you.

A FEW TRAFFIC SAFETY RULES FOR DRIVERS

• Drive carefully and responsibly

• Follow traffic signals at all times

• Maintain speed limit

• Keep left side of the road free

• Avoid aggressive driving

• Drinking driving is prohibited. Avoid drink driving

• Pedestrians always have the right of way.

• In the absence of traffic signals, drivers must always slow down or stop for pedestrians in marked and unmarked crosswalks.

• At stop signs and when a school crossing guard is displaying an official stop sign or flag, drivers must come to a complete stop.

• Drivers must stop when approaching a school bus that is stopped to pick up or let off children. The driver must remain stopped until the bus’s stop sign is retracted and red warning lights are turned off.

• Wherever a school traffic safety sign is posted, drivers should slow down and watch for children.

If a Police Officer Pulls You Over

• Pull slowly and carefully off the road or to the closest shoulder of the road.

• At night, turn on your interior light or if possible, stop in a well lit area.

• Remain in your vehicle unless asked to do otherwise.

If Your Vehicle Breaks Down

• Signal, slow down gradually, and carefully pull off the road on to the shoulder.

• Switch on emergency/safety flashers.

• Raise vehicle hood

• Never stand behind or directly in front of your vehicle.

• Remain in your vehicle unless you think your vehicle may be struck from behind.

• Call or wait for assistance.

CYCLING

• Do not cycle on the road unless you have been trained.

• Make sure there are reflectors on the front and back of the cycle.

• Keep the reflectors clean and do not paste stickers on them.

• Use a bike bag if you have to carry anything on your cycle.

• Wear such clothes that do not get caught in the chain or wheels.

• Wear shoes while riding, sleepers can slip from the pedals.

• Ride a cycle that suits your height. A cycle which is too big or small affects your balance and can be dangerous.

• Check your brakes are working well and your tyres are inflated.

• Wear a cycle helmet - it protects you if you have an accident.

• Be visible - Make sure that other road users can see you easily. Wear bright clothes.

• Avoid cycling in the dark.

• Wear bright or reflective clothes in the dark.

• Look behind before starting off, turning right or left, overtaking, or stopping and make sure it is safe.

• You must obey traffic light signals.

• Give a clear arm signal to show what you intend to do.

• Use cycle tracks while riding along the main roads, if there are any.

• Always keep both hands on the handlebars unless you are giving a signal or changing gears.

• When turning, allow pedestrians to cross first because they have the right of way.

• Never hold another vehicle or cyclist.

• Avoid carrying a passenger on you cycle even if you are expert in cycling.

• Ride at some distance from the edge of the road. The drains or gutters can imbalance you.

• If you want to turn right from a busy road, stop on the left hand side and wait for a safe gap in the traffic then walk or cycle across the road.

• Do not wear a personal stereo or use a mobile phone whilst cycling. These devices affect your concentration.

• Overtake only if, you are certain it is safe to do so.

• Be careful if you are overtaking parked vehicles, they might start off or someone might open the door

• Be prepared for unexpected dangers.

• Always park your cycle in the area marked for parking of cycles. Use a cycle rack if available.

• Always lock your cycle.

• Keep a safe distance from stray cows or from carts. The animals can be unpredictable and can cause injury.

• Don't sound your bell or horn near them as this may scare the animals.

ADDITIONAL DRIVING TIPS

Cell Phones

One in four crashes involves driver distraction. Drivers who use cell phones in their vehicles have a higher risk of collision than drivers who don’t – whether holding the phone or using a hands-free device.

We encourage you to drive now and talk later. If you must make a phone call, pull over. Otherwise, wait until you reach your destination to use the phone.

Railroad Crossings

In a collision with a train, you are 40 times more likely to be killed than if you were in a collision with another car. Therefore, we urge you to remember these tips while driving near railroad crossings:

• Reduce speed when approaching crossings and look both ways.

• Turn down your stereo and listen for a train.

• If red lights are flashing or if crossing arms have been lowered, stop.

• Never stop on the tracks. A train going 50 miles per hour needs a mile and a half to stop.

• Be sure all tracks are clear before crossing – there may be more than one set.

It is also against the law to cross tracks if a train is visible or to drive around gates that have been lowered at a railroad crossing. If the gates are down and no train is coming, the road is closed.

Flash Floods

Flash flooding is the leading cause of weather-related deaths. As little as six inches of water can float some vehicles. If you encounter a flooded road, Turn Around, Don’t Drown.

• Never try to walk, swim or drive through swift water.

• Stay informed about weather conditions when you are driving.

• If your vehicle stalls in deep water, leave it and move to higher ground if you can do so safely.

• Don’t move, tamper with or drive around barriers blocking a low-water crossing
