In Eccles, children are learning more about Road Safety Week thanks to Specsavers, who have pledged their support by offering high-visibility vests to local schools and youth groups.

Risky time of year

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.

Commitment to road safety

Specsavers is pledging its commitment to road safety by providing high-visibility vests, which will improve the safety of children when out and about by making it easier for motorists to spot them.

Please get in touch with the staff in the Eccles store if you have any questions about availability of the vests.
