Staying Safe at Night

by | Wednesday, November 22, 2017

It’s that time of year again! It is getting darker earlier in the evening. This can lead to visibility issues for both pedestrians and drivers. While dark conditions may be unavoidable, there are a number of precautions you can take to stay safe.

  • Use sidewalks and off-road paths, rather than the street. If there are no sidewalks in the area, walk as close to the shoulder of the road as possible.
  • Walk facing traffic so you can see and react to vehicles.
  • Use extra caution when crossing streets – if it’s difficult for you to see, it’s also difficult for drivers to see.
  • Walk in pairs or groups – you can also try to use the same routes used by other walkers and runners
  • Beware of tripping hazards – there are a number of hazards that are harder to see in the dark: uneven sidewalks, rocks, potholes, etc. Be alert to these potential hazards.
  • Avoid distracted walking – put the cell phone down and pay attention
  • Wear reflective gear

Wagners Law Firm is happy to provide free reflective lighted arm bands! These bands can be worn, fastened to bookbags or purses or even used a collar for your furry friends! Stop by 1869 Upper Water Street for yours!

Dyana was so kind to help me and respond to my query within 24h even though they do not pursue the specific class action I was looking for. She sent me few links by email. Thank you Dyana.

Ray Wagner and his legal team have been representing my niece and I for many years. They have been honest and quick to respond to all our needs in a professional manner. I highly recommend Wagners Law Firm and appreciate their caring approach. Thanks

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!

I contacted Wagners about a motor vehicle accident. I was able to speak with someone right away. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I received a response about pursuing a case the next day. I would highly recommend this firm.
