Tips for pedestrians

Pedestrians, remember that:

You must:

  • Respect the road signs.
  • Use the sidewalk or, if there is none, walk along the edge of the road facing traffic.
  • Be sure the coast is clear before crossing or walking on a road.

Before crossing:

  • Go to the closest intersection or pedestrian crossing before you cross the road.
  • Make visual contact with drivers to ensure that there is no risk.
  • Yield to drivers and cyclists if there is no pedestrian crossing.
  • Look to the left, then to the right, and again to the left before crossing.
