How to Cross the Road Safely

The most dangerous part of the bus trip is crossing the road safely. Traffic SHOULD stop! But don’t depend on it! BE EXTRA CAREFUL! NEVER CROSS IN THE DRIVER’S BLIND SPOT!


- Stay seated until the bus comes to a full stop.

- Get off promptly as soon as the bus comes to a full stop.

- Follow the 15-step rule. Walk 15 steps along the edge of the road, then cross the street. Never cross in the bus driver’s blind spot.

- Wait for the bus driver’s signal to cross.

- Walk across quickly, and don’t stop or turn back.
Don’t run. Double-check for oncoming traffic from both directions.

- Look out for your own safety!
