Pedestrian Safety Is A Lifesaving Lesson [Infographic]

Most parents do a pretty good job teaching their kids about safety, but when it comes to pedestrian safety there are just too many rules for most people to remember.  As a result, 44 kids on average are hit by cars in America every day.  Teaching kids to look both ways before crossing the street is pretty common, but there are many more important rules for pedestrian safety that aren’t being taught.

For starters, it’s important to teach kids to cross only at crosswalks.  This provides better visibility for anyone who might be coming down a side street as well as better predictability for drivers who know that pedestrians are likely to cross in crosswalks.  It’s also very important to teach kids to be aware of their surroundings when they are walking.  Put the phone away and take out those headphones and pay attention!  For more about important pedestrian safety rules, check out this interactive infographic!
