Pedestrian and driver safety

With the change in weather conditions Falcone wants to remind you to wear bright clothing and/ or reflective markings. He said ICBC statistics show that the majority of pedestrian accidents occur between 3 and 6 p.m.

He reminds drivers to pay attention and slow down for the driving conditions. He and his partner recently visited all the Nelson elementary schools distributing 1,000 reflectors prior to Halloween.
