Crossing the Street
By Cathy Pearl

1     Crossing the street seems like an easy thing to do. Look both ways for cars and just run across the street. But there are a lot of different things that you need to watch out for when crossing.
2     Some streets don't have any lights or crosswalks. When you get to the corner, you should stop about three or four feet from the curb. Look to the left to see if there are any cars. Then look to the right. Before you step out into the street, look to the left again. If you don't see any cars coming toward you, walk across the street quickly. You should listen for cars, too. Sometimes you can hear a car coming before you can see it.
3     Some streets have signals that tell you when to cross the street. When you get to the curb, look for a button on the pole to press for the signal. Push the button. This will help stop the traffic. Wait until you see the word "walk" or a picture of a man who looks like he is walking. Then look both ways to make sure traffic stopped. You can then walk across the street.
