Surrey RCMP reminds both pedestrians and drivers to be extra vigilant when out on our roads, especially with Halloween fast approaching. Pedestrians are encouraged to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street and never assume a driver has seen you. Drivers are reminded to stay focused on the road and give themselves extra time and space to stop in case a pedestrian suddenly crosses the street.
