Be extra alert on roads during darker months
Road safety advice
While visibility decreases in winter months, stopping distances increase.
If you're a driver you should:
- adjust your speed
- think about how the conditions affect more vulnerable road users
- slow down and pay attention, especially around schools buses when children are getting on and off
- be extra vigilant for people walking, cycling or riding a motorbike - they are much more difficult to see, particularly in the dark
Cyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians (including children) should take extra precautions by making sure they increase their own visibility to drivers by wearing bright, fluorescent and reflective clothing.
Be careful that headphones don’t distract you from your surroundings and the actions of other people.
