in Latest News, Safety

Did you know that 43 per cent of all crashes that injure pedestrians happen between October and January as visibility and conditions get worse?

 

  • Pedestrian safety is a concern at night and in wet weather.
  • You see pedestrians when you really look for them.
  • When you’re driving, take a break from your phone, be extra alert at intersections and be ready to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians.
  • When you’re walking, take extra care to help drivers see you: stay focused on the road and make eye contact.

You can see pedestrians when you really look for them. Please Drive Smart.
