Pedestrians urged to take care during darker evenings
Now the evenings and mornings are darker it is increasingly difficult for motorists to see pedestrians. Pedestrians are being encouraged to think about their presence on the roads and wear high visibility clothing and reflective material and to always use pedestrian crossings where possible, especially on multi carriageways and unlit roads. Motorists are also being urged to take extra care and to look out for other road users.
Vicki Bristow, Communications Manager for the Safer Roads Partnership in Warwickshire and West Mercia said;
“Sadly 3 pedestrians have lost their lives in West Mercia over the past 4 days. With the evenings and mornings now a lot darker it is important that all road users are more aware of each other.’
