With darkness falling earlier and earlier, White Rock RCMP community policing volunteers hit the streets last week to bring awareness to changing light conditions that make pedestrians more vulnerable.
Volunteers were out from 4-6 p.m. Oct. 17, reminding pedestrians to cross at crosswalks, wear bright, reflective clothing and watch for vehicles turning. They also handed out reflective zipper pulls, as well as cards with a safety message.
Program co-ordinator Julia Everett estimated volunteers spoke with and gave reflective tags to about 75 individuals at four intersections.
Efforts to further pedestrian safety are to continue in the coming weeks, especially around schools, she added.
