  3. Review bike safety.  Ask: When we want to cross a street on our bike, what is more important - ridding with the direction of the traffic or stopping to look before crossing the street?  Discuss what can happen if we don't stop to look first before crossing the street.
  4. Review crossing a street safety.  Ask: When we are walking across a street, what is more important - walking or waiting until all cars have stopped before crossing?  Discuss what can happen if we don't wait until all cars have stopped before walking at the crosswalk.
  5. Review automobile safety.  Ask: When we are riding in a car or truck, what is more important - wearing a seatbelt or talking quietly?  Discuss what can happen if we don't put on our seatbelt right away and there is an accident.
