P6 and nursery children from Longtower and Fountain primary schools will be safer on the roads this winter after receiving high visibility vests from the Derry/Londonderry opticians.

Both schools are located near the Specsavers store on Ferryquay Street and have close links with one another.

Road safety

As the nights are longer at this time of year, it is especially important that all pedestrians take precautions and wear high visibility clothing when out and about in the dark. In addition, drivers need to ensure that they are able to see clearly and should have regular eye examinations as part of their overall health check and make sure they wear their glasses, if needed, when driving.

Each class was presented with its high visibility vests by Specsavers store staff, Marion Cavanagh and Louise Doherty.
