I of­ten won­der why pedes­tri­ans put their backs against traf­fic. They can­not see the traf­fic ap­proach­ing. This is one of the first traf­fic rules a young per­son should be made aware of.

Back in the day, one would walk fac­ing traf­fic, so that you could see the on­com­ing traf­fic and be made aware of cars com­ing near. If a ve­hi­cle is go­ing to come in their walk­ing space, the pedes­trian has chance to avoid be­ing hit if they face traf­fic.

Sun glare and inat­ten­tive driv­ing could cause an ac­ci­dent to the walker on the road.

Some school busses have had flat black paint, without gloss, added to the hood, which greatly re­duces the glare of the sun­light and makes vis­i­bil­ity much bet­ter.
