Traffic safety

Lock your vehicle and take the keys with you. Many auto thefts occur because the owner didn’t take time to secure their vehicle. Don't make your vehicle a target.

Don’t park in isolated, dark places if these areas can be avoided. Park where there are people about and where the parking area is well-lit.

Don’t leave valuable items unattended in your vehicle. Place expensive items such as electronic devices and textbooks in the locked trunk.

While riding in your car at night be aware of your surroundings. When approaching an intersection, leave one or two vehicle lengths’ distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you to create an escape route.

For the safety of everyone on campus, please remember the following:

  • Come to a full and complete stop at all stop signs;
  • Pedestrians on campus have the right of way at all crosswalks;
  • Wear your seat belt and ensure your passengers do too;
  • Don’t drink and drive! Have a designated driver or use public transportation;
  • Don’t park in non-designated areas. It impedes traffic flow and increases the risk of an accident on campus;
  • Maintain your vehicle properly. This includes light and brake systems as well as tires; and
  • Ensure your vehicle registration is valid.
