Never Cross in a place where you can't see what's coming, especially...

Near the brow of a hill

You can't see what's coming over the hill

On a blind corner

There could be a car coming around the bend

...and try to avoid crossing near or between parked cars...

Because cars can't see you in time to stop

GORY STORIES - The boy who didn't look for a safe place to cross

He couldn't be bothered to walk to a place
Where cars could be seen from a nice open space
So he crossed the road right next to a bend
Now his arm, for some while, will be struggling to mend

A car can't dodge what it cannot see
So flattened the boy... unfortunately
Now he can't swim, dress himself or go-kart
'Cos his arm is all limp and falling apart
