Reflective Materials Make You Safer After Dark

By Anna Gosline

As the days get shorter, runners, walkers and bicyclists on the SLAC site need to make sure they are visible to vehicles in the dark. Runners and walkers should wear reflective vests or shirts and carry a flashlight. Though walkers and runners are encouraged to keep on sidewalks, they are allowed on roadways and should obey normal rules of the road that you would follow downtown.

Walkers and joggers should keep to the right and stay in single file. By wearing reflective clothing and keeping clear of vehicles, runners and walkers can safely enjoy the beautiful trails and roads at SLAC.
