M.E. and YOU: Crosswalks

Posted on Tuesday, August 02, 2022 03:01 PM

If you need to cross a street, the best place to cross is at a marked crosswalk.

Marked crosswalks are placed in areas with better visibility and have signs to indicate to drivers that pedestrians cross the road at this location.

Pedestrians should always stop, look both ways and make eye contact with drivers before entering a crosswalk. Drivers should always proceed cautiously when...

  • Be patient, expect delays and allow extra time for your trip
  • Obey all flag persons,...

M.E. and YOU: School's Almost Out!

We’re reminding everyone to watch out for children playing outside.

Here are some safe driving tips:

  • Focus on driving, and avoid distractions that can reduce your driving performance and your awareness
  • Reduce your speed when driving anywhere where children may be playing
  • Park at least 5 meters from a crosswalk or an intersection. This will allow pedestrians and drivers to see each other when pedestrians are crossing the street

Parents please remind your children to cross the street at a crosswalk....
