Important Community Reminder
In our neighborhood, we have many walkers and runners, as well as kids on bikes and kids walking to and from their school buses. Drivers - PLEASE slow down and be especially careful, especially in the early morning or late evening hours when it's still dark! We had two adult walkers recently who literally had to jump into the grass to avoid being hit by a car. Walkers / runners - Please abide by all safety rules including wearing reflective clothing, walking or running facing traffic, and staying close to the shoulder or on the sidewalk when possible.
We have had several instances where drivers encountered runners in dark clothing in the middle of the street before the sun was up! Needless to say, this could have been a huge tragedy. Let's please slow down, be extra careful, and if you're out walking or running in the dawn/dusk/night hours, PLEASE wear light colored, reflective clothing and be mindful of your own safety! Otherwise, drivers may not see you.
