STAY IN THE CROSSWALKS, STAY ALERT, STAY SAFE!
Avoid the use of cellphones while approaching areas of traffic and stay alive! Please observe all traffic and pedestrian laws and be vigilent -- always check both directions before crossing a road and cross only when there is safe and adequete time between oncoming traffic. RIMPAC is a busy time for the base and brings about a lot of traffic: vehicular and pedestrian. Stay on the sidewalks and be aware of your surroundings at all times while enjoying your time here. Drivers should also be aware of the increased pedestrian traffic and yield properly if the pedestrian has established themselves in the crosswalk.
