Traffic safety tips

By
From page A8 | September 04, 2014 |

Walking to school:

* Choose the best route to school and walk it together.
* Walk with a group, parent or buddy. Avoid walking alone.
* Obey all traffic signals, signs and street markings such as crosswalks and traffic lights.
* Look in all directions when crossing. Practice always looking left, right, left and forward and back before crossing.
* Cross the street at a marked crosswalk only. Do not cross mid-block.
* Stay alert at all times, especially in bad weather.

Riding a bike to school:

* Wear a helmet at all times. It’s the law.
* Work together to choose the safest cycling route.
* Obey all traffic signals, signs and street markings.
* Always use bike paths and bike lanes when available.

Riding a bike in the street: 
* Ride on the right-hand side of the street.
* Ride with the traffic flow; do not ride facing traffic.
* Watch for right-turning vehicles.
* Watch for cars entering or leaving driveways and parking spaces.

Riding in a car to school:

* Wear your seatbelt for the entire ride, even if it is just a short way to go.
* All children must be secured in an appropriate safety or booster seat in the back seat of the vehicle until they are at least 6 years old or weigh 60 pounds.
* Make sure that children enter or exit the vehicle on the passenger side of the car, next to the sidewalk.
* Park your car a block or two from the school and walk the rest of the way to avoid congestion.
* Obey all parking, walking and driving laws. They are there for your safety and the safety of your children.

Davis police will be enforcing pedestrian and driving laws around the schools to improve safety for children.
