Keeping Silver Spring Visible and Safe

Did you know this is the most dangerous time of year for pedestrians? As it gets darker and darker in the evenings it is more important than ever for drivers to watch out for pedestrians and for pedestrians to make themselves visible. Pedestrians can do this by wearing bright or reflective clothing, walking in well-lit areas, and carrying a flashlight.

On October 5th, the Montgomery County Pedestrian Safety Initiative team went to Silver Spring and spoke to pedestrians during the morning rush hour about this important issue.
To keep pedestrians visible the team distributed reflective bags and zipper pulls. 

Tell us in the comments below how you'll be staying visible this fall!
