“Shorter days and poor weather is a factor that leads to 43 per cent of all crashes with pedestrians occurring between October and January,” said Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann.

“With this in mind pedestrians need to use extra caution when crossing the road and make eye contact with drivers to ensure they see you. Drivers need to pay attention to the road and pedestrians, reduce distractions while driving and slow down.

“Together everyone plays a role in reducing the likelihood of a crash.”
