Stay alert on foot and behind the wheel
On my way to UHC for blood work on a dark and dreary day, I drive along Route 7 to get to my destination.
At the intersection of Main Street, I pull ahead and stop before preparing to proceed. Imagine my surprise when stopped, to see a pedestrian at my driver’s window. She looked as horrified as I was. She was dressed all in black and was crossing the street. This could have been tragic as she was about to walk straight into my driver’s side door and I had not even been aware until she was directly there, looking in at me.
Please pedestrians, just as we drivers try to be observant of all things around us, for your own safety do the same. It would help if instead of dark clothes, you wore something light and/or reflective.
