With the recent tragedy at N.J. 37 @ NJ 166 of a Pedestrian fatally struck, we’ve been asked to make a PSA to help people cross the streets safely.
Remember- WAIT for the WALK!
Don’t assume vehicles can see you, and don’t cross on a Don’t Walk signal. Press the crossing buttons to activate the pedestrian stage of the signal’s cycle. When pressed, the walk signal will illuminate with enough time to safely cross the roadway. Unless the button is pressed, the signal doesn’t know you’re waiting to cross.
Cross only at crosswalks, and don’t assume the right of way at any time. Remember, you could be right- dead right!
Vehicles MUST STOP for pedestrians at an unsignalized crosswalk.
