Pedestrian Deaths Rising

With two months remaining in 2012, Oregon’s passed last year's record of 47 pedestrian deaths.  Shelley Snow with the department of transportation says that's an important and tragic fact that all pedestrians, cyclists and drivers should remember as they head out.  Snow says most drivers and walkers are leaving for work and returning home in the dark at this time of year.  Rain, fog and other winter conditions just make visibility a bigger challenge. She urges pedestrians and cyclists to wear bright clothes or reflective gear and asks drivers to take more time at intersections and crosswalks.
