Daylight Savings and Important Tips for Traveling Safely This Fall

On Sunday, Nov. 1st, we lose an hour and it will be darker earlier. With shorter days this time of year, all road users should be extra alert to see each other. Here are some suggestions to help everyone stay safe on the road:

Wear bright reflective clothing when walking or rolling.

Don’t assume people driving will see you. Make eye contact before crossing in front of vehicles.

Be alert! Keep eyes and ears open, especially while crossing the street.

Cyclists should make sure to have lights and wear helmets – it is the law, and it helps people see you and keep you safe.

Driving or biking? Use extra caution and slow down in the dark and rain. Always be alert for people on foot or bike at intersections, crosswalks (marked and unmarked), bike lanes and in school zones. Do not text and drive – it’s against the law, carries steep fines and is unsafe for all road users.
