Do you know that black and white thing that is found in the middle of the road and looks like the skin of a Zebra?
The Zebra crossing!
It is a marking across the road in the form of stripes and is named after an animal called a zebra.
One thing that all children should know is that they always have a right of way on a zebra crossing.
All cars respect the Zebra crossing because they know that it is the safest place for people to cross the road.
Children should only cross once all the traffic has stopped.
If the traffic does not stop, then you can carefully put one foot on the crossing. This means that the right of way is legally yours, and the traffic must stop so that you can cross.
If a police officer or school crossing patrol is in charge of the crossing, then wait for them to signal before you can start to cross.
Remember to always use the Zebra crossing because it is the only way to cross the road without being knocked down by speeding cars.
