Safe Communities Northumberland County wants you to Brighten Up!  at dawn and dusk. Whether you are taking your dog for an evening walk, going out for a jog before the sun comes up or riding your bike or skateboard, please make yourself visible to drivers by wearing reflective clothing.  Motorists – stay alert and watch for other road users.

Northumberland County has many rural roads and these roads have certain characteristics that can be more hazardous to pedestrians and cyclists, such as fewer lit streets, lack of sidewalks and less traffic controls (traffic lights, stop signs, etc.).

Reflective clothing, including items like reflective zipper pulls, are a good way to be seen at night #BrightenUp

Watch our video and remember to #BrightenUp!

Steve Guthrie from Chex-tv produced a great segment on the importance of Be Bright – Be Seen – Be Safe  #BrightenUp
