Text version for 'Safest place to cross'

In this game, children are asked to look at a map and find seven safe places to cross. This is based on the first part of the Green Cross Code:

1). Find a safe place to cross

and where there is space to reach the pavement on the other side.

Where there is a crossing nearby, use it. It is safer to cross using a subway, a footbridge, an island, a zebra, pelican, toucan or puffin crossing, or where there is a crossing point controlled by a police officer, a school crossing patrol or a traffic warden.

Otherwise choose a place where you can see clearly in all directions.

Try to avoid crossing between parked cars and on a blind bend or close to the brow of a hill. Move to a space where drivers and riders can see you clearly.
