17 Oct2015 Pedestrian Safety Tips for Kids Written by Editor. Posted in Did You Know Be bright: Wear clothing with retro-reflective patches and make sure your bicycle has reflectors and a light. Ensure drivers have seen you before you step off the curb by making eye contact. Leave the phone alone and turn down the tunes when crossing the street. If there is no sidewalk, use the left side of the road facing traffic. And of course, look ALL ways before crossing a street, driveway or alley.
