This year's Road Safety Week is being supported by Specsavers, including the Strtetford branch, who are offering a number of high-visibility vests to local schools and youth groups.
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.
Safer walk to school
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.
If you'd like to make an enquiry about the availability of the vests, please contact the Stretford store.
