To the Editor of TLS. I’d like to share with your readers a not-uncommon occurrence, but nonetheless worth bringing to light. I was driving at about11:00 pm last night down a dark road, when suddenly in front of me, a man, dressed completely in black, ran across the street. I had to hit my brakes hard in order not to strike him.
I understand many in Lakewood have the custom to wear dark suits when walking on the streets, but I respectfully ask that pedestrians with such attire wear some type of reflector to better alert motorists.
Additionally, as the nights begin to get earlier, I feel it’s wort reminding readers of this issue.
