Be Seen Be Safe at Night

October 24th 2019

British Summer Time is ending this weekend please always  wear or carry something bright that will help us to be seen more easily during the day, and at night.

By day…

During the day always wear clothes with bright colours. Fluorescent material is even better as it helps us to really stand out and be seen during the day. This material also helps us to be seen in the evening before it is dark.

By night…

Fluorescent material does not work in the dark! We need to wear something reflective so we can be seen when car headlights are shining towards us. Even a small patch of reflective material can help drivers to see us from very far away.

Things to remember!

FLUORESCENT MATERIAL – is effective outside during daytime because it reacts to the ultra-violet rays in sunlight. I could be a stripe on your jacket, patches on your bag or an armband.

REFLECTIVE MATERIAL – works in the dark because the special surface reflects light (street lights, car headlights etc.)
