Always look both ways before crossing the street, even if there is a traffic light or stop sign. Make sure you can see clearly in all directions and that no cars are coming before you start to cross. If crossing at a crosswalk, push the button and wait for the walk signal before crossing. Don’t assume it can see you just because you can see a car. Make eye contact with drivers as they approach to make sure they see you. Be extra careful when crossing at night or in bad weather. Wear bright clothing or reflective gear so drivers can see you more easily. Try to cross streets at well-lit intersections whenever possible. Don’t dart out into the street from between parked cars. Drivers might not see you until it’s too late. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic so drivers can see you coming. Don’t use your phone or headphones while crossing the street. You need to be able to hear traffic and be aware of your surroundings. Pay attention to what’s happening around you, and don’t cross the street if distracted.

How do you say thank you when crossing the road?
Personally, after I’ve been given ‘permission’ by a driver to cross a street I hold my hand up, not to say ‘Stop,’ but to say thanks. I also usually nod my head and say ‘Thanks.’ And then I walk fast or trot across the street to show that I respect them as well.
