Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, it is important to follow all traffic laws and be cautious of the conditions of the road. If you’re behind the wheel, avoid distractions and look out for pedestrians at all times. If you’re a pedestrian, cross the streets at designated crosswalks or intersections. When walking alongside a road, remain on the sidewalk wherever possible. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the shoulder and face oncoming traffic.
