Pedestrian Safety When It Is DarkBy Cheryl Henley
December 14, 2018
People waiting for the Borough Bus in the dark should put on some sort of reflector. They might think drivers see them standing on the shoulder of the road at night, but not always. It may be cool not to have any reflective tape, or whatever on, but it is needs to be used.
Years ago, the STATE TROOPERS handed out Safety Bear reflectors to kids in school so that people could be seen. I guess the budget doesn't allow it now.
Last of all, street lights that are out should be fixed. Does KPU monitor them along the highway. Bet not. I called them, and was told that they would put a work order out for that.
An accident occurred at the North end by Pond Reef Road and the gas station there tonight [Thursday]. I don't know why; but it is dark at the different turn-offs at Pond Reef, North & South Higgins Roads, too.
