Road safety campaign pops up in town

High-visibility vests are being handed out at the OSA pop-up shop in Smith Street to mark Road Safety Week.

The initiative is being overseen by Living Streets Guernsey, which hopes to achieve a better and safer walking environment for islanders.

Specsavers support

120 yellow vests for children have been kindly donated to the group by Specsavers in Market Square.

Specsavers director, Sarah Burchett says: ‘With darker nights setting in, we feel it’s extremely important for children to be seen. We are delighted to be able to supply the hi-vis vests as we aim to support the local community whenever and as much as we can.’

Road safety

Living Streets Guernsey chairman Tom Le Pelley said it was the seventh year the charity had used the pop-up shop in Smith Street. 

‘As usual, we will be highlighting a number of road safety issues which affect pedestrians. In addition, we will be giving out free high visibility waistcoats (on a first come first served basis) to members of the public to emphasise our “Be safe be seen' message”.’

The shop will be open until Friday 20 November, 10am to 4pm.
