Runway Safety Tip

When operating on an airport surface at night or even during daylight when the visibility is restricted, use extra caution. It’s harder to taxi safely and the controllers may not be able to see you. Other aircraft and vehicles will have the same problem, so stay extra alert when operating on an airport at night or in reduced visibility.
