Bezpiecxzeństwo dzieci-pieszych

Być może twoi rodzice nie pozwalają ci jeszcze samodzielnie, lub z kolegami wychodzić na ulicę. Może to byc bardzo niebezpieczne, jeśli nie zwracasz wystarczającej uwagi na wszystko co dzieje się dookoła ciebie. Twoi rodzice będą wiedzieć, kiedy będziesz wystarczająco duży, aby zrobić ten krok w dorosłość.


Istnieją zasady i przepisy mające na celu zachowanie twojego bezpieczeństwa jako pieszego. Jeśli rodzice pozwalają ci już wychodzić samodzielnie na ulicę, najważniejszą zasadą jest trzymanie się z daleka od jezdni. Jest to łatwe, jeśli droga ma chodniki. W miejscach, gdzie nie ma chodnika powinieneś iść lewym poboczem, jak najdalej od jezdni.

Signs & Signals

In some areas there are signs, signals and roadway markings to help you to cross the road safely.


When you cross the street at a corner with a signal light, you should wait for the green light to show in the direction you are walking.


At busy intersections there may be lines on the road called a crosswalk for you to walk between. There may also be special signals to tell you it is okay to cross the street. There is a green light with a picture of a person walking.

Always look both ways before you cross the street, by looking left, right and left again to make sure no cars are coming or turning into the crosswalk.

Yellow lights and signs mean caution or that you are coming to a dangerous area. If you are waiting to cross the street, you should not cross if the light is yellow. The light is about to turn red, and cars will enter the intersection.

Crossing the Road

Crossing the road where vehicles are parked


  • Avoid crossing between parked cars.

But if there is nowhere else to cross:

  • Choose a place where there is enough space between two cars
  • Make sure no car is about to move out of the parking - look for drivers in the cars, lights and listen for engines.
  • Ensure that you can easily get to the other side of the road.
  • Walk to the outside edge of the cars and stop.
  • Look on both sides for traffic.


Crossing road with a median

Some roads have an island or a median in the middle.

  • Treat each half of the road as a separate crossing.
  • Wait on the island or median, observe and then cross.

Crossing at a zebra crossing

If there is a zebra crossing, always use it.

  • Wait on the pavement near the edge and wait for all the traffic to stop before you start to cross.
  • After traffic has completely stopped from both sides, walk across on the black and white stripes.

Keep looking all round and listening because a driver might not have seen you.

If it is wet, cars take more time to stop.

Crossing where there is an island in the road

Mostly traffic flows in one direction on these roads.

  • Treat each half of the crossing as separate crossing.
  • Watch out for overtaking vehicles.
  • Do not assume that vehicles will stop.
  • Check that the vehicles have stopped before crossing.

School traffic managed by police or traffic marshalls

  • When school crossing is managed by police officers or traffic wardens, wait until they signal to you to cross the road.
  • Always cross in front of them and obey their instructions.

Crossing one-way roads

  • Check the direction in which the traffic is going.
  • Traffic will be flowing in more than one lane; do not cross until it is safe to cross the whole road.

    • Look for traffic in all directions and listen.


    • Wait patiently and let the traffic pass.
    • Cross when there is a safe gap and you are sure there is enough time.
    • Don't cross if you are not sure.

    10 złotych zasad

    1. Trzymaj się z dala od jezdni!

    Kiedy się bawisz, upewnij się, że jesteś z dala od jezdni. Kiedy biedniesz, kedziesz na rowerze, lub na deskorolce, możesz się tam niespodziewanie znaleźć. Krawężnik musi byc granicą.

    2. Także na "zielonym" rozglądaj sie w lewo i prawo.

    Przechodź przez ulicę wyłącznie na zielonym świetle. Ale nawet wtedy rozglądaj się w lewo i prawo, aby sprawdzić, czy wszyscy kierowcy się zatrzymali.

    3.  Gdy jest ciemno, noś jasne ubrania

    Kiedy za zewnątrz jest ciemno, noś jasne ubrania aby być widocznym dla kierowców. Twój tornister powinien mieć odblaskowe paski.

    4.  Używaj chodnika jadąc na rowerze!

    Możesz używać chodnika, jeśli wydaje ci się to bezpieczniejsze. Uważaj jednak na pieszych!

    5.  Noś kask!

    Zawsze zakładaj kask, nawet jeśli wybierasz się tylko na krótką przejażdżkę rowerem.

    6. Światła i hamulce twojego roweru muszą działać!

    Sprawdzaj swój rower regularnie z pomocą rodziców. Wszystko powinno być na swoim miejscu i działać poprawnie: hamulce, przednie i tylne światła oraz dzwonek.

    7. Nigdy nie wyjeżdżaj na łyżworolkach na jezdnię.

    Kiedy wybierasz się na rolki zakładaj pełny zestaw ochraniaczy: kask, nałokietniki, ochraniacze na nadgarstki i kolana. Nigdy nie wyjeżdżaj na rolkach na jezdnię.

    8. W samochodzie używaj fotelika dla dzieci

    Za każdym razem siadaj w foteliku, nawet gdy podróż samochodem trwa krótko. Zapinaj pasy!

    9. Wysiadaj z samochodu od strony chodnika!

    Zawsze wysiadaj z samochodu od strony chodnika lub pobocza, nigdy od strony jezdni.

    10. Uważaj na przystankach!

    Na przystanku autobusowym często musisz czekać. Kiedy autobus przyjeżdża lub odjeżdża zachowaj najwyższą czujność. Przede wszystkim: zachowaj spokój wsiadając i wysiadając z autobusu i nigdy nie przechodź przez jezdnię przed jego maską.
