During the course of an average day at the University there may be as many as 15,000 people traveling on campus – in cars, on motorcycles, mopeds, bicycles, skateboards, scooters or on foot. This makes campus a very busy place, and can create dangerous situations for everyone if they don’t pay attention. Cross safely, drive safely: Pedestrian safety is up to everyone!
Did you know: You can be fined up to $200 for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
Pedestrians: Take the Time to Cross Safely
- Use pedestrian crosswalks and obey pedestrian walk/don’t walk signals.
- Cross intersections carefully – don’t assume vehicles will stop.
- Take extra care at dusk and dawn. Solar glare, darkness and rain can make it difficult for drivers to see you.
Drivers: Stop for Pedestrians!
- Stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.
- Beware of other drivers yielding for pedestrians.
- Beware of solar glare.
- Don’t drink and drive – 49% of all pedestrian fatalities involve alcohol, either by the driver or the pedestrian.
