Road and Bicycle Safety - 4th grade
Keep an eye on the road ahead so you can be prepared for big hills and road hazards (a source of danger). Riding at night is a hazard because drivers can’t see you. One way to help you be seen is to make sure you have reflectors (an object used to reflect/bounce light) on your bike or wear reflective clothing.
List 3 possible hazards you might come across while riding and explain what could happen because of them.
Knowing how to be a safe pedestrian (a person who is walking along a road, in a city, etc) involves many things. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Remember to pay attention to street signs and stop lights. They are there to protect you.

Be Seen, Be Safe!
Wearing bright clothes and putting reflectors (an object used to reflect/bounce light) on your bike also can help you stay safe. It helps other people on the road see you. And if they see you, that means they're less likely to run into you. Daytime riding is the safest so try to avoid riding your bike at dusk and later. It is very important that you are visible when walking or biking at night.
