SEE IT: Transportation Department video teaches kids proper ways to cross the street

The Department of Transportation has put together a hip-hop video that encourages children and teens to wait for the green light, cross in the crosswalk and stay alert after they step off the curb.
The 4-minute, 15-second “Cross this Way” video also encourages youths to put away their smartphones and iPods while crossing the street.
With a hip-hop track created by Department of Transportation safety educator Anthony Taylor pounding in the background, students from Brooklyn’s Public School 261 are filmed crossing the street in dangerous ways.
