To the Editor: With dawn coming later and sunset coming earlier, more joggers are running on the roads in darkness. It is unfortunate that they need to be reminded that it is difficult for drivers to see them if they wear dark clothes and do not carry some kind of light. I  do not understand why joggers would put themselves in danger when reflective vests and small, lightweight lights ...
