For Grade 4 students, here are simplified traffic rules for pedestrians and cyclists:
- Use designated crossing areas: Cross the road at designated pedestrian crossings, such as zebra crossings or traffic signals, whenever available.
- Look both ways: Look left and right for approaching vehicles before crossing the road.
- Cross with caution: Wait for a safe gap in traffic, and then walk across the road without running.
- Follow traffic signals: Obey traffic signals and signs, such as the walk signal or green light, before crossing.
- Be visible: Wear bright or reflective clothing, especially at night, to make yourself more visible to drivers.
- Wear a helmet: Always wear a helmet that fits properly when riding a bicycle.
- Ride on the correct side: Ride on the left side of the road, facing oncoming traffic.
- Use hand signals: Use hand signals to indicate turns or stops.
- Obey traffic signs and signals: Follow traffic signs and signals, just like cars do.
- Be visible: Use lights and reflectors on your bicycle to increase visibility, especially when riding at night.
- Yield to pedestrians: Give way to pedestrians when crossing the road or using pedestrian crossings.
It’s important to note that these rules are simplified for Grade 4 students, and additional detailed traffic rules and regulations may apply in real-life situations. It’s always recommended to teach children the importance of road safety and to supervise them when navigating roads and traffic.
