Specsavers in Morecambe is supporting Road Safety Week this year by providing  high-visibility vests to  local schools and groups such as Brownies, Guides and Scouts.

Darker nights

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.

The optician 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.

Contact the Morecambe store to enquire about the vests or visit www.roadsafetyweek.org.uk.
