Did You Know as a pedestrian you might be difficult to see? Make sure you’re visible to drivers at all times. This is especially important at night, in low-light conditions such as dusk or dawn, or in inclement weather. Wear reflective clothing and a safety light at night and brightly coloured clothing during the day. Put down your phone. Don’t wear headphones. Stay alert and watch out.
