There’s some interesting reading from The Department for Transport http://www.dft.gov.uk about THINK! it’s latest road safety campaign. It reminds all of us of some top tips to help children be seen when out and about on the roads, particularly important as the days get shorter and we head into Winter…

According to the DfT, Britain’s roads are among the safest in the world and the number of children killed has fallen by 82% in the last 20 years. However, the fact remains that 81 children still died on our roads last year.

At Neil Hudgell Law, we’re behind any measure to do more to cut this toll. So here are THINK!’s top tips for making sure children are visible:

Wear brightly coloured or fluorescent clothing which shows up well in daylight and at dusk.

If you’re out and about when it’s dark, wear reflective gear to make sure you can be seen in car headlights. Reflective vests, sashes or wristbands work well. Remember, fluorescent clothing doesn’t work after dark.

Use accessories – even small items such as clip-on reflectors, fluorescent arm bands and stickers on your school bag are a great way to improve your visibility.

If you like to cycle, remember that it’s the law to have clean and working lights at night (white at the front and red at the back) as well as a rear reflector.

Being bright isn’t the only way to stay safer. If you’re out at night, choose routes and crossing places that are well lit and remember to always use the Green Cross Code.

The THINK! Tales of the Road website has interactive games and exercises explaining the importance of being visible on the road. Children can visit: http://talesoftheroad.direct.gov.uk/be-bright.php.

Couldn’t fault Hudgell Solicitors. They were professional, pleasant informative and helpful and got a result which was better than I had ever expected. When Becci left the practice and Alex took over my claim it was a seamless change over, indicating a personel strength in depth. Thank you.
