Safety on the roads is a very hot topic in Central Ohio and around the nation.
Staggeringly high incidents of pedestrian/cyclist accidents are occurring. As a runner and cyclist I very easily get caught up in the movement to better educate drivers. But, perhaps we need to be a little more self critical at the same time.
Undoubtedly, improved driver education is crucial. However, education of our own user groups is equally important. How many times have you been driving though your neighborhood and seen a cyclist or runner not properly dressed in reflective gear or lit up with blinking lights?
I know that I have been guilty of this myself. Here has been my logic on many a dark morning.... I figure, I'm wearing a headlamp, and my running pants have reflective piping. Driver will will see me. Right? Watch this video and you be the judge!
