Never change your direction nor suddenly stop in the middle of the street.
It is highly recommended that you walk confidently, slowly and in a straight line. Be predictable. Never change your direction nor suddenly stop in the middle of the street. Do not be tentative and keep on walking. The traffic will respond to your own movements.
