Make sure you are visible in the dark

People are now going to and from work or school in the dark.

Pedestrians in dark clothes do not seem to realise that they are almost invisible to motorists. Sometimes all a driver sees is a white plastic shopping bag or a luminous strip on shoes.

Manufacturers should be encouraged to put a luminous strip on school blazers and winter jackets.

High-vis waist coats, armbands and belts should be on sale along with winter jackets and school blazers .Most sports shops do stock them so I urge everyone to make themselves visible in the dark.

Many motorists seem reluctant to follow the official advice to drive with dipped headlights in heavy rain; some do not even use their lights in twilight and fog.

So “Be Safe , Be Seen”.
