Tips for pedestrians, cyclists

City Hall and Park City School District officials are distributing a flier describing tips to keep pedestrians and bicyclists safe, a guide that the two published as the start of the school year is approaching.

The flier also coincides with the installation of a pedestrian signal on Kearns Boulevard near the schools campus. Some of the tips include:

Pedestrians should cross streets at crosswalks or intersections

Pedestrians should wear light-colored or reflective clothes at night.

Pedestrians should make eye contact with drivers before they walk in front of them.

Cyclists should ride consistently and obey signs and stoplights.

Cyclists should use hand and arm signals when turning.

Cyclists should ride slowly on sidewalks and paths, where pedestrians have the right of way.

Cyclists should look for vehicles that are turning or leaving driveways.

The flier will be distributed through the School District. Pedestrian and cyclist safety has long been of concern in the Park City area, with many wanting to walk or ride bicycles but complaining it is not safe in some places. Voters in Park City in 2007 passed a $15 million bond for pedestrian and bicyclist improvements.
