Be sure you're clad in bright colors and/or reflective materials. Research out of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh found pedestrians are three times more likely to be struck and killed by cars in the weeks after the fall time change, as they and drivers struggle to adapt to the changing light. The winter months are tricky too. Choose outer gear with reflective graphics on the front and back and shoes with reflective features. Wear reflective tape on your clothing to ensure you're seen in the chilly dark.
