Twin Cities Safety Cup Pledge

Reaching zero deaths on our roadways takes commitment from all of us, whether we drive, bike, walk, or roll.

Your pledge makes you a partner in our mission, raises awareness of roadway safety issues in the Twin Cities, and helps make sure everyone gets home safely.

As a driver, I will...

  • Expect to see pedestrians everywhere
  • Be sure to look for and yield to pedestrians when turning at traffic signals
  • Come to a complete stop for people in crosswalks and allow for them to cross
  • Never pass a vehicle stopped at a crosswalk
  • Travel the speed limit (20 mph in Minneapolis & Saint Paul unless otherwise posted)

As a pedestrian, I will...

  • Make my intention to cross clear to drivers
  • Stay alert and not assume drivers will stop for me
  • Cross at crosswalks
  • Make sure a vehicle is clearly coming to a stop before I step out into traffic
  • Obey traffic signals

As a bicyclist, I will...

  • Be predictable by using hand signals
  • Stop for pedestrians at crosswalks
  • Stop at all stop signs and traffic signals
  • Ride in the same direction as traffic and pass with care
  • Use safety equipment including helmets and lights at night
