(HealthDay News) — To help keep kids safe while they’re walking to school, a friend’s house or just around town, be sure to discuss pedestrian safety.

The website offers this advice:

  • Explain basic safety pedestrian rules, including walking on the sidewalk or path, and only crossing the street at a corner or crosswalk.
  • Tell your child to put away any electronic device while walking, making sure to look both ways before crossing a street.
  • Don’t allow a child under age 10 to cross the street without an adult.
  • Make sure your child knows to make eye contact with drivers, and to be on the lookout for cars turning or backing up.
