There have been several pedestrian accidents and some deaths in pima county.
Whenever I drive around town after dark, most, if not all people, seem to be wearing dark, even black clothing. This makes it hard for automobile drivers to see them. I do not understand the preference for dark clothing at night. It would be much better to wear some reflective clothing, even using some night blinking lights on their backs.
I hope this suggestion makes the night walkers aware of the risks they are taking, and minimize them by wearing reflective clothing. Save your lives.
