Several times as I am driving home in the dark, I have noticed runners dressed in dark clothing. I could hardly make them out and think to myself, “What if they get hit?”
I do notice people running with fluorescent green jackets on that can be easily seen. Some have an orange or green strip across the back of their jacket. More often then not I see a lot more people – kids and adults – out in dark clothing.
It would be easier for us drivers and safer for the runners to wear something that could be seen easier in the dark of night.
