Try not to cross at a junction unless there is a proper crossing place. If there is no proper crossing place at the junction it will be safer to cross away from it where there are fewer traffic movements to look out for.

Do not cross diagonally over a junction or use the centre island of a roundabout, unless there is a pedestrian crossing. Cross one arm at a time using the Road Crossing Code. Look out for crossing places carefully, particularly across a main road, and choose the safest route, trying to minimize the number of crossings. Watch out for turning traffic. Drivers, particularly at 'Give way' lines and 'Stop' lines, may be preoccupied in looking for an opening in the traffic and may not give way to you.

If a Police Officer or Traffic Warden is controlling traffic at a junction take into account his or her signals in judging whether the traffic is going to stop. If the Police Officer or Warden is also controlling pedestrians you must wait for his or her signal to cross.

Do not cross diagonally over a junction

Cross a minor road and then use a crossing place to cross the main road
Cross a minor road and then use a crossing place to cross the main road. This may be safer than crossing the main road in one go.
