Now that it's getting darker earlier, GPD is reminding drivers to look out for pedestrians. You're three times more likely to get hit by a car during this time of year than any other, because daylight saving time has ended. GPD Officers say drivers have the mentality that it's later and no one is out jogging or walking. Pedestrian Alysa Carmicheal, says "I always cross the cross walk at night. Always wait until it turns to the little walking man and just be cautious and look both ways."
Another thing to consider, pedestrians have the right of way on UF's campus, so they may forget that isn't the case at intersections around town so drivers should be extra careful..
