Safety Tips

As darkness comes earlier in the evenings it is important to remember a few key pedestrian safety tips.

  • When possible use sidewalks or trails and do not walk in the roadways. Always use crosswalks when available.
  • If a sidewalk, trail or crosswalk is not available walk in the roadway closest to the curb and look both ways before crossing the street.
  • If it is necessary to walk in roadways, walk facing oncoming traffic.
  • If walking after dusk wear light colored clothing or a reflective vest to be more visible to motorists.
  • Put down your cell phones and avoid wearing your headphones if it is necessary to walk in the roadway. Using these can distract you from what is going on around you.
