THE GREEN CROSS CODE
When out and about be safe and be seen. Wear something bright so traffic can see you.Make sure that you’re not distracted by a mobile phone and can hear traffic, which might mean removing your headphones, or turning the sound down.Where possible cross at crossing places like zebras, pelican crossings and traffic islands.Where there are no formal crossing places look both ways and listen out for traffic before crossing.Always plan your journey, think about how you are going to get there and which crossing you will use.
