We've all seen and/or been one of these offenders on Mizzou's campus:
- The pedestrian in a hurry darting in front of a moving vehicle.
- The distracted texter obliviously meandering into the street.
- The Frogger-inspired daredevil sprinting across four lanes on a busy road.
- The road-hogging driver refusing to stop for pedestrians.
- The clueless motorist blocking the crosswalk.
Don't be one of these people, Tigers. Poor street-crossing etiquette isn't just annoying; it's dangerous. Every year people walking around Mizzou get hurt in avoidable encounters with cars, buses, bicycles and other vehicles.

Many of us learned about street-crossing safety in kindergarten or on an episode of Sesame Street, but some of us might need a refresher.
