Joggers and bicycles, scooters and rollerblade riders are encouraged to wear a reflective belt or vest at all other times to maximize their visibility and increase their safety.

An exception to this policy is that headphones may be worn on the quarter-mile track on Indian Field and on the 2-mile golf course jogging trail.
