Watch for leaves on the pavement

1 Comment

Red leaves on wet pavementThe leaves are beginning to turn and the weather no longer feels like summer.

There are easy precautions to make enjoying autumnal beauty on foot or bike a safe experience:  

  • Wear bright clothing.
  • If you're biking, slow down.
  • Be especially careful when turning: wet leaves can be very slick.
  • Always have your bike lights with you. Consider using a blinky light or reflectors when walking
  • If you're biking, please wear a bike helmet and secure it well.

See this page for more biking tips in wet and dark conditions. The AARP has five helpful driving tips for autumn.

We want to find out if there are any legal remedies for neighbors who do not rake leaves at all. Sidewalk, street, other peoples' yards. They just shrug when we ask them to take responsibility. What should we do?
