It’s getting cooler out, however many people choose to walk or bike instead of driving when possible. If this is your choice of transportation, we have some tips to share with your for safe walking and cycling.
When walking:
  • Always cross at marked crosswalks so cars are aware of your presence.
  • Make sure drivers know you are about to cross by making eye contact with them.
  • Don’t just look left and right – pay attention to cars that may be turning at intersections.
  • If you’re walking at night, wear bright or reflective clothing.
When riding a bike:
  • Always make sure you have enough room to avoid being sideswiped by nearby vehicles.
  • Use hand signals when turning or stopping so that drivers know what you are about to do.
  • Wear bright or reflective clothing so that you catch drivers’ attention and they know you are there.
  • Be attentive and slow down slightly when nearing intersections.
