WATCH YOUR WALKWAYS Walk on sidewalks and in crosswalks whenever possible. It is important to pay attention to walk signals and keep a safe distance when standing on street corners. Trucks and buses make wide right turns and occasionally run up onto the corner of the sidewalk. It is important for you to be alert and to move back. Most likely, the truck driver will not see you or maybe distracted and you could be seriously injured or killed if hit. KNOW YOUR NO-ZONES Be careful of the blind spots, or No-Zones, around cars, trucks, and buses when walking near or around them. Always assume the driver does not know that you are there. Because of a truck’s large blind spots, a driver may not see, so it is up to you to avoid a crash. Never walk behind a truck when it is backing up truck drivers cannot see directly behind the truck and could seriously injure you.
