If you’re a motorist then you’ll know how difficult it can sometimes be to see pedestrians wearing dark clothes at night or when visibility is poor. Your child will have been learning the road safety message ‘Be Bright, Be Seen’ at school, and it’s important that you as a parent or carer help your child to be easily seen near traffic.
1. On dull days your child can wear bright or fluorescent colours
2. If walking near traffic at night reflective clothing is needed
For older children who may consider fluorescent and reflective armbands and clothing ‘uncool’, stickers can be bought which can be put on bags or coats.
This message isn’t only for children: make sure you wear bright clothing too.
