    Staying Visible In Winter Weather

    January 11, 2017  |  By:  Oatley Vigmond

    With the winter months upon us, the crisp air and snow covered trees can be a breathtaking sight and an inspiration to get out and enjoy the winter wonderland. However, one should take caution: blinding and wind-blown snow can create a risk should you not take the necessary precautions to remain visible to traffic. The days are also shorter so it increases the likelihood of running or walking in the dark.

    Motorists have many hazards to be cautious of when driving in the winter months. If you run or walk regularly or have a New Year’s game plan to get healthier and more active, following some simple precautions before heading out can drastically reduce your risk of being struck by a car and potentially seriously injured.

    Always remember to walk or run against the flow of traffic and always assume drivers cannot see you. Dress appropriately for the weather and wear brightly colored clothing. Carry a flashlight when walking your dog. High visibility reflectors can be easily attached to clothing, backpacks, walkers or strollers and can significantly increase your visibility to drivers, which in turn increases your safety. A few minutes of preparation can provide you with a worry-free excursion. Enjoy!
