It is your job to watch out for others on the road, and that includes pedestrians. Youngsters and those over 65 represent almost half of all pedestrian accident victims. To keep these folks safe:
· Stay on guard when children are near the crosswalk; they may either ignore the traffic signs or not understand them.
· The elderly cannot move as fast as others, so give them some extra time while crossing the street before going forward.
· Exercise caution at night when going through intersections that have a lot of street traffic; pedestrians may not be wearing reflective clothing and may be hard to see.
