  1. No idea what the circumstances were, but it seems timely to remind everyone that with the early darkness, headlights coming at you fore and aft, and rainy, reflective streets, that pedestrians are essentially invisible!! At least they should consider themselves so, and wear light and/or reflective clothing when going about on the streets. Drivers don’t want to hit anyone, ever, but please don’t challenge us too much.
