Organize neighborhood walking pairs and groups.
Pay Attention to the behaviors around you.
Never have both earbuds in while walking.
Use the Safe and Sound Strategy!
If you walk home, to stay home on your own,
never show your key in your hand until you use it to enter your home.
Always check to make sure the home is secure before entering.
If you are not sure, seek a safe neighbor for help.
A parent can help manage the safety of their child by teaching safe
practices, pointing out the correct and designated route,
and telling children areas or homes to avoid.

What Should You Do? Helping Children Protect Themselves in the Twenty-First Century
Tate Publishing 2010
Safe Kids Worldwide is promoting safety for walkers with the following basic strategies-
Look left, then right, then left again when you cross the street.
Cross the street at the corner or at a crosswalk and obey all traffic signals.
Cross the street with an adult until you are at least 10 years old.
Walk on sidewalks or paths, not in the street.
Play in safe areas, away from streets, driveways and parking lots.
