Stay visible warn police

SOUTH Yorkshire Police are encouraging people to ‘be bright, be seen’ now that the clocks have gone back.

Ken Wheat, Manager for the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership, said: “If you’re a motorist then you’ll know how difficult it can be to see pedestrians wearing dark clothes at night or when visibility is poor.

“With the clocks changing this weekend I would encourage all parents to remind their children about the Green Cross Code and ensure that they are wearing bright or reflective clothing.

“We would also ask drivers and riders to remain vigilant and check the condition of their vehicles as winter draws near.”
