Specsavers Caernarfon has helped to ensure that children will be safe on the roads this season, by supplying high visibility vests to several schools and community groups in the area.
Risk from motorists
While daylight hours are minimal putting children at greater risk of not being seen by motorists, the Bridge Street store has provided vests to a number of local groups, including Gwaun Gyfni in Deiniolen.
Dark mornings and evenings
At this time of year with the dark mornings and nights, combined with increasingly wintry weather, it can be difficult for motorists to see pedestrians. Many children are walking home from school at dusk, which is a particularly hazardous time.
Helping children and parents feel safe
The scheme aims to ensure that children – and their parents – feel safe when they’re out and about over the next few months.
By raising awareness and offering the children these vests, the store hopes to increase safety on trips and excursions.
