Be Seen Be Safe - Evenings and Mornings Helping our Children to Stay Safe

Alert message sent 29/09/2020 13:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Be Safe Be Seen :–

With the change in weather comes the shortening of daylight hours. The clocks will go back 1 hour in late October. Rather than just relying on drivers to spot children we ask that all parents, teachers to help children to stay safe and be seen.

What does it mean to be safe?

Always wear or encourage children to carry something bright - that will help them to be seen more easily during the day, and at night.
During the day always encourage children to wear clothes with bright colours. Fluorescent and reflective materials are even better as it helps you to really stand out and be seen during the day as well.

Why do we need to be seen?

We all need to be seen to keep us safe and to let the other road users know that we are there. Being seen is very important for everyone's safety. Many serious accidents happen because drivers do not see other road users or pedestrians until it is too late.
Remember always wear or carry something bright that will help you to be seen more easily during the day, and at night.

What is the best way to be seen?

It’s even better to wear something reflective, or a fluorescent material, which will help you to really stand out - these materials also help you to be seen in the evening before it is dark and in the early mornings before it becomes light.

Please stay safe - please consider other road users including pedestrians at all times but particularly children, at or near schools at opening and closing times, during the next few months.
