Tips for Drivers
- Yield to pedestrians anywhere in a crosswalk and come to a complete stop if necessary.
- Do not pass vehicles stopped at crosswalks.
- Slow down when driving on campus. The campus speed limit is 20 mph. Be alert to heavy foot traffic.
- If an older adult or physically challenged person is crossing at an intersection or crosswalk, be patient.
- Watch out for pedestrians when you are making a turn or backing up in parking lots or driveways.
- As you drive, scan for pedestrians about to cross or enter your path. Always be alert.
- Use caution driving at night. Pedestrians and cyclist are very difficult to see.
