BREWER – This time of year, it’s pretty tough to see pedestrians who are walking on the roads near dusk or once the sun goes down.
The employees of the Brewer Police Department and the Brewer Public Library have teamed up to help make it easier for motorists to see pedestrians.
They’re offering free reflective arm bands.
“People can just come to the library and pick them up. They’ll make you safer during the winter, at night, walking down the street,” said Darren French, the director at the library. “We have a lot of people walking around, even people who ride their bikes and walk to the library, so it’s great for them.”
The bands were provided to the city by the Maine Department of Transportation.
