10 Tips for Driving and Walking Safely

  1. It’s your responsibility to drive and walk safely so always be alert and attentive to the motorists and pedestrians around you.
  2. Never drink and drive. And don’t let friends drive drunk.
  3. Always buckle up. The life you save could be your own.
  4. Obey traffic signals and signs. They are there to keep you and others safe.
  5. Make sure you have plenty of time to get to your destination so you don’t feel pressured to speed or disobey traffic signals.
  6. Don’t give into road rage. Your life and the lives of your passengers are more important than angrily reacting to an irresponsible driver.
  7. Pedestrians should always wear light-colored or reflective clothing at night to be more visible to drivers.
  8. Before you take a left turn at an intersection, make sure it is safe to do so. (More than one-third of all deaths to vehicle occupants occur in side-impact crashes. Most of these occur at intersections.)
  9. Obey the speed limits and make sure you drive carefully through intersections and work zones.
  10. Don’t drive when you are drowsy. If you are drowsy, pull over at a rest area and take a nap before proceeding.
