Pedestrian Safety Tips

Safety on our campus roads, parking areas, and sidewalks is a shared responsibility for all of us, including pedestrians and drivers. With winter weather and construction impacting travel, please keep the following tips in mind.

Pedestrians

  • Wear the right shoes for the conditions.
  • Use sidewalks and crosswalks wherever possible.
  • Be alert to vehicle noises and lights when in parking areas and at crosswalks.
  • Avoid using your cell phone and ear buds when walking in vehicle traffic areas.
  • Don’t assume that drivers see you and will stop. Make eye contact before crossing.
  • Our patients and visitors may be driving here for the first time, or have an appointment or loved one in their thoughts.

Drivers

  • Obey speed limits and come to a complete stop at STOP signs.
  • Don’t drive distracted.
  • Always yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.
  • Drive cautiously in parking areas and use your headlights.
  • Keep your windows clean.
  • Look carefully before pulling into and out of parking spaces.

Thank you
