Brighter clothing makes pedestrians safer

Dear editor,

I'm very pleased to see how responsibly young children are negotiating their way to schools.

They respect lights and stop signs, look both ways and walk speedily to the sidewalks. Parents can be proud.

One more way to ensure children's' safety would be to make sure the children wear some bright clothing — a jacket, a scarf or even a bike light.

These dark mornings make it difficult for drivers to see any walkers.

We adults could also heed this suggestion.

Ann Johnstone,
