With the rainy season upon us and shortened daylight hours, here are a few friendly safety reminders:
During the darkened commuting time, drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists need to be extra aware of each other.
Change the windshield wipers and check the tires on your vehicles.
While cycling, wear reflective clothing and ensure both front and back bike lights function.
Earbuds/headphones limit awareness of surroundings and increase pedestrian risks.
Check your building entrances for mats and plastic umbrella covers to ensure floors stay dry.
Use the flashlight available on most mobile phones when walking to or from your car in the dark.
Be careful when driving, walking or riding your bike on wet pine needles. Report a build-up of needles or debris to the Work Request Center.
If lights are out in key areas, like steps, pathways, or parking lots, report it to the Work Request Center.
