1.     Describe rules for protecting pedestrian safety.

Jul 15th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1) Walk on the sidewalk whenever possible. If sidewalks are not available, walk facing traffic on the edge of the road, as far from the travel lane as possible. 

2) Cross at marked crosswalks or intersections. 

3) Stop at the curb and look left, right, and left again for traffic. 

4) Walk defensively and be ready for unexpected events. Know what's going on around you and don’t allow your vision to be blocked by clothing, hats, or items that you are carrying. 

5) Avoid moves that will surprise drivers. Pedestrians darting out from between parked vehicles are the leading cause of Rapid City’s pedestrian/vehicle crashes. 

6) Watch the pedestrian signals, not the traffic signal, and follow the "WALK/DON'T WALK" lights (they're set up to help you cross safely). Look for pedestrian push buttons for crossing protection at signalized intersections.

 7) Make sure that you are seen: 

a) Make eye contact with drivers when crossing busy streets. 

b) Wear bright colors or reflective clothing if you are walking near traffic at night. 

c) Carry a flashlight when walking in the dark. 

8) Watch out for parked vehicles. Parking lots can be as dangerous as streets. 

9) Beware of the effects of alcohol, medications and other drugs. Alcohol use by pedestrians is involved in 15% of all pedestrian/vehicle crashes. 

10) Watch young children. Children should not cross streets by themselves or be allowed to play or walk near traffic

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
