As the days get shorter, more people who enjoy walking or running outdoors have to exercise near or after dark.
In our part of the country, it’s already pretty dark by 6:00 p.m. in the autumn and certainly in the winter.
That means that you have to be careful when walking or running near roads after dark.
As the Triangle becomes more congested, more drivers on the roads than ever. People returning home from work are often tired and distracted.
You have to protect yourself by wearing light colored clothes, reflective clothing or items, and personal lighting if you can.
Always remember to walk or run FACING traffic if possible. Obviously, if only one side of the road has a sidewalk or a good, broad shoulder, use that, but keep an eye on approaching traffic.
