Staying Safe While Walking
Here are some things to keep in mind when walking or jogging:
Always wear sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
Be alert for changes in the sidewalk, such as cracks or uneven pavement, or locations where no sidewalk is present.
Check the forecast and stay alert for bad weather.
Don't wear headphones.
Stay inside if it is above 80 degrees and humid or below 25 degrees and windy.
Use caution around strange dogs.
Walk against traffic on the far left side of the street.
Warm up, cool down, and always stretch.
Wear bright or reflective attire when walking at night.
