Fatal pedestrian knockdowns are all too common in the city, just 60 miles south of Newburgh, however here in the Hudson Valley residents typically feel a sense of safety while walking the streets. Cars crashing into pedestrians is something you just don’t hear about often in this part of the state, but it doesn’t mean as pedestrians we shouldn’t take caution.
Those who enjoy evening walks should remember to wear bright, reflective colors. During the fall the days become shorter and shorter, compromising driver visibility. Always walk on a sidewalk when possible and avoid busy roads and intersections.
