What side of the street should you walk on?

When sidewalks are present one should always use them, regardless of which side of the road it is on. Walking against traffic (left side of the road) is the recommended way to walk along a road that does not have sidewalks because walking against traffic allows pedestrians to establish and maintain eye contact with opposing drivers and assists pedestrians with the ability to see possible dangers coming their way.

When you are walking with the flow of traffic, you only have your ears to rely on to alert you of anything coming, which can occasionally be a little startling and would impact your ability to make good decisions. To be on the safe side please always use sidewalks when available, and if sidewalks are not present, please walk against traffic.
