In order to show their support for Road Safety Week, Specsavers in Salford are pledging to provide some local school children and youth groups with high-visibility vests for them to use when they are out walking.

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.

Easier to spot

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 contact the staff in Salford if you would like to make an enquiry about the availability of the vests.
