The Traffic Safety section encourages both drivers and pedestrians to look out for each other, especially this time of year.

Beware The Glare

In the fall (September/October) and spring (March) the glare of the sun coincides with morning and evening rush hour. This creates blinding conditions for drivers and pedestrians are much more difficult to see.

Drivers:

  • Watch for pedestrians

  • Keep your windshield clean inside and out

  • Wear sunglasses

 

Pedestrians:

  • Stop and look both ways before stepping into the street

  • Make eye contact with drivers, whenever possible, before proceeding

  • Proceed with caution

Outsmart The Dark

After the sun goes down until it rises, visibility is reduced and the danger to pedestrians increases.

Drivers:

  • Watch for pedestrians

  • Ensure your headlights AND tail lights are on

  • Expect the unexpected

 

Pedestrians

  • Stop and check before stepping into the street

  • Make eye contact with drivers

  • Proceed with caution
