More Pedestrian Collisions Occur During the Winter Months

Pedestrian safety becomes an even greater concern during the annual change from Daylight Savings Time to Eastern Standard Time, which occurs this year on November 1. Pedestrian collisions spike during the winter months and according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, fatal pedestrian/motor vehicle collisions occur most often between 6 p.m. and midnight.

To stay safe, pedestrians are encouraged to wear reflective materials at dusk and night. They should never assume drivers can see them, even when in the beam of a vehicle’s headlights. Drivers should slow down and be aware that pedestrians can be virtually invisible at night or in bad weather.

For more pedestrian safety tips, go to the County’s website.
