Let's Get Visible, Visible!
With Daylight Savings Time about to end- we “lose an hour” and it will be darker earlier. With shorter days this time of year, motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians need to be extra alert to see each other in low light situations.
Improving visibility means improving safety for everyone. Wearing light colors or reflective clothing is one of the simplest things pedestrians and cyclists can to do keep themselves safe. Here are additional suggestions to help keep you safe while walking and biking:
- Don't wear headphones, text or talk on a cell phone while crossing the street.
- Be aware of vehicles around you. Make eye contact before crossing in front of vehicles.
- Don't assume that cars see you or are going to stop.
- Driving or biking? Expect and slow down for pedestrians in popular walking areas, around schools and parks, and near crosswalks.
