Safety Tips for Walkers
Avoid walking alone.
Always walk facing traffic. Stay on the sidewalk or near the side of the road.
Walk during daylight hours. Wear reflective clothing, carry a small flashlight and walk in well-lit areas if you must walk after dark.
Carry identification and change for a phone call.
Don't wear personal headphones. You need to hear traffic noises and the movements of others around you.
Don't walk along highways or main commuting routes. Carbon monoxide levels are highest there.
Leave a note or let someone know your route and when you expect to return.
