Fall Back, Be A PAL

With the Daylight Saving Time change, winter days get shorter, and the nights get longer, we all still have to go about our business.  That means we’ll be walking, biking and driving in the dark more often, so it’s very important to be a PAL when you’re getting around Arlington after sunset.  Being visible is a crucial part of being Predictable, Alert, and Lawful.
