Tips for Walking Safely to School

Walking is fun, but you need to be safe while doing it. Follow these tips to make sure you get

to and from school without any problems.

Walk together

Younger children should always walk with an adult. Tell your parents that walking is great

exercise and a nice way to spend time together.

If your parents say that you can walk to school on your own, remember these tips:

• Walk with a friend when possible.

• Ask your parents to help you pick a safe route to school; one that avoids dangers.

• Stick to the route you picked with your parents. Don’t let friends talk you into shortcuts

that are more dangerous.

• When you are near the street, don’t push, shove, or chase each other.

• Never hitchhike or take rides from people not arranged by your parents.

• Talk to your parents and teacher about any bullying that may happen during your walk.

Be seen

Remember, drivers may not be able to see you well. Always wear bright-colored clothes and if

it is dark or hard to see, carry fl ashlights or wear refl ective gear.

Look for traffic

Watch out for cars and trucks at every driveway and intersection on your walk to school. Look

for drivers in parked cars. They may be getting ready to move.

Cross the street safely

1. Stop at the curb or edge of the street.

2. Look left, right, left and behind you and in front of you for traffi c.

3. Wait until no traffi c is coming and begin crossing.

4. Keep looking for traffi c until you have fi nished crossing.

5. Walk, don’t run across the street.

Obey traffic signs, signals and adult school crossing guards

TIP SHEET

 

Be a walking role model

Children learn through experience. Walking with

parents or another caregiver is an important way for

children to practice crossing real streets and picking

safe places to walk. There is no magic age when

children are old enough to walk without an adult.

But, as a parent, you should decide when your child

has the skills and experience to deal with traffi c safely

without you.

As you walk with your child, remember these safety tips:

• Wear bright-colored clothes, and carry fl ashlights

or wear refl ective gear if it is dark or hard to see.

• Look for traffi c at every driveway and intersection.

Be aware of drivers in parked cars that may be

getting ready to move.

• Obey all traffi c signs and signals.

• Cross the street safely:

1. Stop at the curb or edge of the street.

2. Look left, right, left and behind you and in

front of you for traffi c.

3. Wait until no traffi c is coming and begin

crossing.

4. Keep looking for traffi c until you have fi nished

crossing.

5. Walk, don’t run across the street.

Understand your childs’ limitations

Children are not small adults. It will take time and practice for a child to develop the ability to deal with lots of traffi c.

Over time, children develop the ability to accurately judge the speed and distance of oncoming traffi c. Young children

may think that a car is able to stop, when in fact, it is not. Also, children may think that if they can see a driver, the

driver can see them. But, children are smaller and harder for drivers to see. Get down to a child’s height to experience

their perspective and see what they see.

Choose the safest route to school

Select a walking route with less traffi c and

intersections.

• Pick places where there are sidewalks or paths

separated from traffi c. If there are no sidewalks

or paths, walk as far from the motor vehicles as

possible and, if possible, on the side of the street

facing traffi c.

• Limit the number of street crossings. When

available, cross at a location with an adult school

crossing guard.

• Avoid crossing busy or high-speed streets.
