When you cross the street at a corner with a signal light, you should wait for the green light to show in the direction you are walking.
At busy intersections there may be lines on the road called a crosswalk for you to walk between. There may also be special signals to tell you it is okay to cross the street. These are the WALK signal or a picture of a person walking like the ones shown here.
Always look both ways before you cross the street, by looking left, right and left again to make sure no cars are coming or turning into the crosswalk.
Yellowlights and signs mean caution or that you are coming to a dangerous area. If you are waiting to cross the street, you should not cross if the light is yellow. The light is about to turn red, and cars will enter the intersection.
Like a yellow light, both of these flashing "DON'T WALK" signals mean to use caution.
If you are in the street, finish crossing the street.
If you have not started crossing the street, stay on the curb.
When the signal turns red, STOP. If the light is red in the direction you are walking, do not cross the street.
At busy intersections there may a DON'T WALK signal or a picture of a hand, meaning STOP like the ones shown here.
Wait to cross the street until you see a white signal. Then look carefully to the left, right and left again. If there is no traffic coming, cross the street.
This sign means you are coming to a crosswalk.
Crosswalks are two white lines painted on the road which go across the street. You should walk inside the lines.
Cars, bicycles and in-line skates must stop to allow people in the crosswalk to cross the street.
When you use the crosswalk to cross the street, before you step into the street, you should look carefully to the left, right and left again to be sure it is safe to cross.
