REMEMBER: pedestrian safety is a serious issue. One in six traffic fatalities is a pedestrian. Pedestrians lose in any collision, regardless of who had the right-of-way. Drive cautiously when pedestrians are near and may cross your path. Watch out for pedestrians at street corners, even if there are no crosswalks. Be careful while backing up. Stop for the safety of anyone crossing the street on foot.
Do not pass a vehicle from behind that has stopped at a crosswalk. A pedestrian hidden from your view may be crossing. Do not drive on a sidewalk, except to cross it at a driveway or alley. When crossing, always yield to any pedestrian.
Pedestrians using guide dogs or white canes with or without a red tip are partially or totally blind. Be very careful when you see these pedestrians. Give them the right-of-way at all times.
