Instead of the right.
Formats the SAFETY RUI£.
Even Mary’s lamb can learn that easy safety rule! Best rule of all—for school children
and everyone else—is: Don’t walk on the highway. But if you must, then walk to the
left, facing oncoming cars. Your chances of avoiding accident are three times better when
you observe this rule.
Use special care at night and when roads are slippery. Even at moderate driving
speeds, motorists often can’t see pedestrians in time to stop. At 40 miles an hour, a safe
stopping distance may be as much as 164 feet—much more at higher speeds.
v. SVhen you walk on the highway, your life is your lookout. So—look out!
