DEMON DRIVEWAY // CRAZY CROSSROADS











Picture10DEMON DRIVEWAY

OBJECTIVE

Teach children to stop at the end of their driveway and look both ways to determine if it is safe before turning onto the street.

 

CRAZY CROSSROADS

OBJECTIVE

Teach bicyclists to stop at stop signs; wait for traffic; look in both directions; position pedal for a takeoff; and go when there is no conflicting traffic.




PROCEDURE

 

  • First time, children should ride out to edge of street. Stop and look left, look right and look left again for traffic. Then make a right turn and continue to corner with stop sign. Again stop and look for traffic and then go straight through the intersection.
  • Second time through volunteers should hold up cars so that children will have to identify cars and wait for them to pass before continuing on.
  • When children finish the course have them circle around to end of line heading out the driveway.
  • Ask children what obstacles may be at the end of their driveway that they need to look around.
