To show their support for Road Safety Week, Specsavers in Leigh are providing high-visibility to local school children and youth groups, which they can use when they're out and about.

Darker 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.

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.

Supporting local groups

Please contact the Leigh store if you would like to learn more about the vests, and whether you can get any for a local school or group.
