Be bright, be seen’ as the clocks go back

The clocks will go back on 27 October and we want to remind all road users to ‘be bright, be seen’ as it gets darker. Pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and horse riders, are reminded to be alert and make themselves visible by wearing reflective or fluorescent clothing. Motorists should also take extra care to look out for other road users, particularly in poor weather conditions which may reduce visibility.
