RPD Issues Safety Tips After Recent Increase In Vehicle Vs Pedestrian Collisions

There has been an increase in the number of recent vehicle versus pedestrian in Redding, and the Redding Police Department wants to slow that trend. Whether your are a driver, cyclist, or pedestrian, you can help significantly reduce the risk. According to the RPD motorists should slow down especially near intersections and crosswalks, and slow down at night. Do not block crosswalks while waiting for a right hand turn and don’t ever drive impaired or distracted. Pedestrians should always cross in a crosswalk and watch for oncoming traffic. Wear bright colored clothing, and use a flashlight at night.
