Be Safe. Be Seen.

Be Safe. Be Seen.

This past weekend, four pedestrians died on South Carolina roadways; 64 pedestrians have died on South Carolina roads so far this year. It takes pedestrians and motorists both doing their part to stop this deadly trend. Pedestrians can greatly increase their chances of being seen by motorists and avoiding a collision when they wear light or reflective material. Watch this helpful video to see what a difference it makes when you dress to “Be Safe. Be seen.” Motorists, we need your help too. LOOK for pedestrians: • Drive with your bright headlights on when there is no oncoming traffic; • Reduce your speed on rural roadways, especially at night; • Scan ahead and stay alert for unexpected pedestrians on rural roadways. #lookforpedestrians #besafebeseen #TargetZeroTuesday
