Pedestrians must make themselves visible to drivers, especially in darkness

Now that I am back living in the city, I realize how easy it could be to hit a pedestrian. With the days being shorter (it is dark when I am going to work), I notice people dressed in black in the dark. If you are standing at a crosswalk, I can’t see you until I get there.

Wear reflective clothing, a headlamp, reflectors on your handbag or briefcase; carry a flashlight. I will gladly stop.

Making yourself more visible helps keep you safe and also gets you across the street quicker.

Don’t blend in, stand out.
