Orpington eyecare experts enlisted some little helpers to help spread the message about the links between visibility and road safety during Road Safety Week.

The team from Specsavers in Orpington shone the spotlight on road safety by handing out 100 high visibility vests to pupils at Warren Road Primary School, in celebration of the annual awareness week from the charity Brake.

A word from the store director

Wai Leung, store director of Specsavers in Orpington, said: ‘We have a responsibility, as eyecare specialists, to communicate to our young people the important relationship between sight and safety when using the roads. We hope our young people will wear their high visibility vests with pride when out and about, and set an example to other pedestrians.’

The store is also renewing its call to drivers to put vision on their agendas and make time for regular eye tests.

Specsavers is a co-sponsor of Road Safety Week, an initiative from the charity Brake, which promotes regular eye tests for drivers and road safety.
