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.

Courtesy of the Blacksburg Police Department, the Welcome Center has Safety Tips information available. You may also check it out on our website at: http://www.foxridgeliving.com/pdf/Blacksburg-Police-Dept-Safety-Tips.pdf.

With your help, we raised $2,378.35 and donated all of the proceeds to the following charities: The Montgomery County Christmas Store, NRV Senior Services, The Women’s Resource Center, The Humane Society of Montgomery County, our local food bank and The Angel Tree. By giving to this program, Foxridge residents, staff and our contractors have demonstrated the true meaning of the Holiday season.
