Highway Code for pedestrians #3
Highway Code for pedestrians says that one of the safest ways to cross the road is zebra crossing. It is advisable not to run suddenly over the zebra but to give traffic plenty of time no notice you and to stop before you start to cross. Bear in mind that vehicles will need more time to stop when the road is slippery. ideally if you can wait until traffic has stopped from both directions or the road is clear before crossing. If there is an island in the middle of a zebra crossing you can use it to wait for traffic to stop. Take into consideration that the second half of the road is a separate crossing.
