Pick Up Your Free Reflective Flasher For Walking and Cycling at Dark — As Daylight Saving Time approaches this weekend, morning and evening rush hours are likely to get darker and foggier, limiting visibility for people who ride their bikes or wait at bus stops. Recent statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates 75 percent of all fatal crashes occur just before dawn and just after dusk. Therefore Fairfax Connector will be handing out free reflective flashers at a number of locations through Nov. 9, including Reston Town Center. For more information, visit the Fairfax Connector page of the county website. [Fairfax County Government]
