"Walking rules" Rome Transportation Tip by baronedivandastad
Rome Transportation: 721 reviews and 680 photos
A city with 2.3 million cars deserves a walking tip. While most of Rome's centre is pedestrianized, you'll occasionally have to cross a street with lots of traffic. Here's a couple of useful rules.
1) Remember that 90% of traffic deaths and injuries come from pedestrians, and take care.
2) Find the nearest zebras or traffic lights, then start crossing with moderate and constant speed, always looking to the forthcoming driver (there'll be one). Don't wait for drivers to stop, just walk ahead and don't panic: they will.
3) If you don't feel safe crossing at some point, walk ahead or back a few hundred meters, and you'll most probably find zebras or at least a place with better visibility.
4) Follow the flow, do as the Romans do.
