Walking is one of the best—and simplest—things you can do for your health. Following a few basic tips can help you stay safe, especially when you get the fever to walk at night:

  • Walk facing traffic.
  • Use sidewalks and crosswalks when available.
  • Look left, right, and left again before crossing a street. Make eye contact with drivers.
  • Stay alert. Avoid talking or texting on your phone.
  • Carry a flashlight and wear high-visibility (preferably retroreflective) clothing and gear.

If you're driving, be alert for pedestrians. On average, it takes 300 feet—the length of a football field—to stop when traveling 65 mph. Download this bookmark to learn more and test your reaction time.
