CROSSING THE ROAD
A useful mnemonic phrase used for teaching how to cross the road more safely:
" Look right - look left - look right again! "
With British roads, the greatest danger for pedestrians is that of being struck by kerbside traffic approaching from the right. Looking left first can instil a false sense of safety and lead one to begin crossing immediately, with disastrous consequences. Always look to the right first, and once more to check!
