Pedestrians: Be Alert, Be Safe: As anyone who has tried to cross campus when classes are changing knows, there are a lot of people walking on and around campus. While drivers, bicyclists and skateboarders are often reminded to be alert for pedestrians, we as pedestrians need to work to ensure our safety as well. This is especially true during wet and cold seasons, when footing is more treacherous and vehicles can’t stop as quickly. Wear traction devices when appropriate and never assume a driver can see you or will be able to stop in time to grant you the right of way. Visit the I-Safety webpage for more steps pedestrians can take to be safe.
