TO: All Students
FROM: Department of Public Safety
SUBJECT: Your safety matters
The semester well underway and most people are settled into a daily routine.
With this message, the Department of Public Safety - the CU Police Department
and Parking & Transportation Services - asks that your routine include a high
level of awareness for your own safety and for others. Most accidents and near
accidents on or near campus each day are avoidable.
Walk in pedestrian lanes. Never use more than half the path. Pay attention to
what is around you. Avoid the distractions you can control. Make eye contact
with drivers before you cross in front of them. Others cannot avoid what they
cannot see; make yourself visible at night.
Control your speed. In the core of campus the speed limit is 10 mph and 5 mph
during class change. Avoid the distractions you can control. Make your approach
known with a greeting like -on your left-. Cross or ride in the street
carefully. Others cannot avoid what they cannot see; make yourself visible at
night. Wear a helmet and use proper lights. Check this out:
Who Yields to Whom?*
- Bicyclists and skaters yield to walkers
- Bicyclists yield to skaters
- Downhill users yield to uphill users
- Faster users yield to slower users
* CDOT publication Colorado Bicycle Manual; -Rules for Shared-Use Paths-
Drivers must yield to pedestrians. Expect pedestrians and bicyclists on roads
near campus. Control your speed. Be prepared to stop at any time.
Play a role in making CU safer.
