TY: It may be okay for you to cross the street TY: on a quiet street in your neighborhood, TY: but what should you do at a busy street? CYRANI: Do not cross a busy street by myself! CYRANI: Cross with an adult! CYRANI: And stay together! SYDNEI: Correct! SYDNEI: But do you know how to be a smart pedestrian SYDNEI: when you’re crossing the street on your own? KIDS: Yes!

DREW: Find a safe place to cross! SYDNEI: How do you find a safe place SYDNEI: to cross the street? DREW: I look for a place where I can see DREW: clearly in both directions. DREW: Parked cars, bushes, trees, fences, DREW: a curve in the road, or a hill DREW: can block me from seeing cars DREW: and keep cars from seeing me. DREW: I do not cross where my view is blocked. DREW: I look for a safer place to cross. DREW: When I find a place where I can see cars DREW: and cars can see me I am ready to cross the street. TY: Good! SOPHIA: Stop at the edge! TY: The next step is to Stop at the Edge. TY: Why do you always stop at the edge of the road? SOPHIA: I stop at the edge where SOPHIA: I can look both ways for traffic. SYDNEI: What do you do if you need to cross SYDNEI: near parked cars? SOPHIA: I stop twice. SOPHIA: First I stop at the edge of the road, SOPHIA: to make sure the parked cars aren’t SOPHIA: getting ready to go. SOPHIA: Then I stop at the edge of the cars SOPHIA: so I can see traffic and traffic can see me. SEAN: Look and listen for traffic! TY: Okay, you’ve stopped at the edge. TY: Do you know the right way TY: to look and listen for traffic? KIDS: Look Left! KIDS: Look Right! KIDS: Look Left Again! SEAN: I look left first SEAN: because that’s where the traffic is closest to me. SEAN: I look right next to see if any traffic SEAN: is coming on the other side of the road. SEAN: I look left again to make sure it’s still safe SEAN: because cars move quickly. SEAN: And I don’t forget to listen for traffic! SEAN: If I hear a car engine… SOUND OF CAR ENGINE SEAN: or a siren… SOUND OF SIREN SEAN: or a horn… SOUND OF CAR HORN SEAN: I stop and look again. SEAN: If I don’t see or hear any traffic SEAN: and check left, right, left SEAN: to make sure it’s clear, SEAN: then it’s safe for me to start crossing. KATE: Cross quickly and safely! SYDNEI: How do you cross the street quickly and safely? KATE: I look and listen for traffic as I cross. KATE: I walk straight across. KATE: I walk quickly, but do not run. BRANDON: Be extra cautious in bad weather BRANDON: or when it’s dark! TY: What should you do to be extra cautious TY: in bad weather or when it’s dark? BRANDON: I wear bright colors and reflective material BRANDON: so drivers can see me. BRANDON: I wait for cars to pass because they BRANDON: can take longer to stop on slippery streets. SYDNEI: Okay, last one! NOELIA: Be a role model! SYDNEI: What can you do to be a good role model SYDNEI: for younger kids? NOELIA: I always cross the street safely myself.

This is good but perhaps instead of look out for any traffic instead say "look out for cars, bikes, motorbikes, trucks, runners, animals too in some places". As we grow into driver's we tend to only look out for cars this is why so many cyclists and motorbike riders get hit. Let us program the mind while they are still young as we know our eye will only focus on what we are trying to look out for.

I think you should never go out if you rely a girl to be your role model.

The simplest app is here!
While crossing the road, you still show hands to stop vehicles?✋🏻✋🏻❌❌
Not anymore! Just open this app and show this while crossing, it will be atleast better than hands and will bring more attention to the motorists.

How about no

Kyler Rogers · October 9, 2018 at 10:04 pm

I am trying to get to school but to get there I have to cross a 4 lane road and it is usually busy.

Kyler Rogers · October 9, 2018 at 10:11 pm

Sometimes I have seen people walk in the middle of the street going down the road instead of across.

Xro · December 2, 2018 at 1:39 pm

Need to add one thing I see WAY to much of
Cross the Road +
Don't walk Down the Street /

And this is to teach Younger Kids. Older kids seem to think this no longer applies to them. Their Attitude is "I Am a Pedestrian I have the Right of way" cars have to stop for them.
Yeah I see & hear about a lot of cars NOT STOPPING even for Buses.
You verses a Car? You are going to Lose first.
Puberty seems to lower IQs.

Try going to Egypt, people cross even wen cars are only 10 meters distance, and best of all many cross while texting and talking on phone, and the the thing of looking left and right, this does not apply to them. They just cross, they dont care about safe place. Safety to all, please.

3:14 look right again!

Stefan · November 2, 2019 at 10:16 am

Keep in mind if you stop at the edge you send a signal to the traffic that you don't move. This could be misunderstood. I’d rather recommend to not stop if you have clear sight. Just start looking left and right right before the edge and keep moving if it’s safe.

Stefan · November 2, 2019 at 10:18 am

Rule number one ☝️ don’t get ran over. 😁
