If it feels like the days are getting shorter, it’s not just you. In a little more than two weeks, daylight savings time will end; essentially putting most people in hibernation mode until next March. While it is a sign that winter is coming, it is also a warning that pedestrians may face additional dangers. After all, the time change will mean that more people will be commuting (and more pedestrians walking) while it is dark.
It may go without saying, but the risk of pedestrians getting hit by cars (and motorcyclists) increases because they are harder to see at night. So what can pedestrians do to protect themselves? This post will highlight some helpful tips.
