Pedestrian Safety PEDESTRIANS: Watch Your Step Be aware of your surroundings when walking and always proceed with caution when interacting with the streetcar. Never cross or run in front of an approaching streetcar or between two stopped vehicles. Wait until traffic has stopped before crossing and only cross at designated crosswalks. Never assume a driver sees you. Be aware of your environment and recognize that the streetcar is operating in mixed traffic. Stay alert—streetcars are quiet and cannot stop as quickly as a car As shown in this safety video, pedestrians should be especially aware of their surroundings and the special pedestrian “safe to walk” signals along the corridor where streetcars cross travel lanes.
