Ped iceWinter Weather Pedestrian Safety Tips...Please be aware of pedestrian safety during the snow and ice season. Vehicles have a harder time stopping on slippery surfaces and snow piles can block a driver’s view of pedestrians. Keep your eyes and ears on what’s going on around you. Use sidewalks that have already been cleared when available. If you are coming out from behind a snowbank, stop first and check to see if it is safe. You may be less visible because snow piles or glare off of the snow, always check before entering or crossing a roadway. Stay away from roads and sidewalks when plows are trying to clear the snow, and from sanders as they treat the road surface. Be aware that snow removal equipment moves backwards, forwards, and may turn sharply. Don’t walk in front of snow plows! Make sure the driver sees you by making eye contact and wait for them to pass before crossing. Contact Physical Plant (x7504) to report slippery areas or those that need to be cleared.
