MORRISTOWN - Officials in Morris County are warning pedestrians to be more careful when crossing the street now that daylight saving time has ended.

Traffic safety officials in Morris County say a recent study shows that one is three times more likely to be hit and killed by a car after turning back the clocks. Denise Chaplick, Morris County's principal transportation planner says that "Almost 30 percent of pedestrian crashes occur in the last three months of the year in October, November and December when darkness is more prevalent."

Morris County officials are giving out reflective bands in hopes that it will help deter accidents.
