KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Law enforcement officials say daylight saving time increases dangers to pedestrians and is the most dangerous time of the year for them.

On Friday, Kissimmee police officers were at the intersection of Donegan Ave. and West Carroll Street, near Kissimmee Elementary School, stopping drivers who were speeding and not stopping for pedestrians. 

“No one stops for you. It’s like a risk. You gotta wait, so if someone is speeding, you definitely don’t have a chance,” Kareem Davis said.

Davis lives near the school and walks every day with his dog near the intersection of Donegan Ave. and W. Carroll Street.
