According to a CNN report, pedestrians walking at dusk are three times more likely to be struck by a car than before the clocks are moved back.
The highest risk for pedestrians occurs around during November. This risk decreases each month until May [when the spring time change and longer days cause accidents to drop dramatically]. Reports show that it is not the actual dark that causes these pedestrian car accidents, it is the drivers' adjustments to the earlier darkness.
Drivers: Be on the lookout for pedestrians as you drive at dusk and after dark.
Pedestrians: Take extra care to make sure that drivers can see you.
