King City residents warns others to be visible in the dark
To the Editor:
With the seasons changing and more hours of darkness, I wanted to write with a safety reminder. Please do whatever you can to be seen if you are walking in the dark.
At the very least, wear a light-colored shirt or jacket. Even better would be to wear something reflective or to carry a flashlight pointed at the ground. Anything to help motorists see you.
I have noticed most people walking around King City do not use the sidewalks. This is okay during daylight hours but could be dangerous in the early morning or evening when visibility is lessened.
I have had a few scares recently driving in the early morning and not seeing a walker, wearing dark clothing, until I was almost upon them. Please be safe out there!
