1. Mind all traffic signals and/or the crossing guard - never cross the street against a light, even if you don't see any traffic.
2. Walk your bike through intersections.
3. Walk with a buddy.

Riding in a Car
1. You might have heard before that most traffic crashes occur close to home, they do.
2. Safety belts are the best form of protection passengers have in the event of a crash.
3. You are four times more likely to be seriously injured or killed if ejected from the vehicle in a crash.
Everyone needs to be buckled up properly. That means older kids in seat belts, younger kids in booster seats and little kids in child safety seats.
