Nanaimo RCMP, RDN Transit and ICBC are teaming up on a pedestrian safety awareness campaign.

Caroline Robinson with ICBC braved the rain on Thursday morning to help hand out reflectors to transit riders.

Constable Gary O’Brien says free reflectors will be given to transit riders throughout the RDN over the next few weeks.

Nearly 260 pedestrians are hurt and six are killed in BC every January. 10 pedestrians are struck and killed by cars annually on Vancouver Island.
