October is being celebrated as the first National Pedestrian Safety Month. The new initiative is geared to bringing awareness to the safety of those non-motorist we share the roadways with , who may walking along our sidewalks and paths, or riding in the bike lane. As darkness arrives earlier in the evening, pedestrians are 30% more likely to be involved in a fatality crash between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. from September to February, according to a recent NHTSA statement. Please be careful and look closely for pedestrians along your travels. Thanks as always for your partnership as we work together, to make our community better.
