Safety warning for cyclists pedestrians and motorists
ROAD users are urged to "be seen and be safe" – as the clocks go back next Sunday.
British Summer Time comes to an end at 2am in the morning when the clocks will go back one hour.
Evenings will become noticeably darker, with dusk falling as early as 4pm – just as schoolchildren are travelling home and rush hour begins.
Notts County Council is asking youngsters to wear fluorescent or bright clothing in the daytime and reflective material at night to make them more visible to drivers.
At the same time, motorists are being urged to use their headlights.
Without reflective clothing or accessories a pedestrian or cyclist is only visible in low beam headlights from 30 metres away. By wearing or using reflective items they become visible at 150 metres.
Councillor Richard Jackson said: "We can all play our part in helping to make sure roads are a safe place to be."
