Reminder: Keep safety in mind as you head back to campus

With the semester now in full swing, motor vehicle traffic on campus has increased. To prevent injuries the UW-Green Bay Police offers these reminders:

  • Drivers: Please allow extra travel time to prevent speeding, buckle your seat belt every time and remember that state law requires motorists to stop for pedestrians in a crosswalk — including crosswalks on campus.
  • Pedestrians: Cross streets at marked crosswalks. Look left, right and left again before crossing a street. Watch for turning vehicles. Walk facing traffic when there is no sidewalk. Don’t assume vehicles will stop — make eye contact with the driver. Don’t wear headphones or talk on the cell phone while crossing the street. At night wear bright/light colored clothing or reflective material and carry a flashlight.

You will see UW-Green Bay Police addressing traffic violations on and around campus and heavily enforcing crosswalks safety. Please be attentive when you get behind the wheel so we can work together to achieve zero traffic injuries or deaths in Wisconsin.
