With the dark winter months upon us, many motorists say that they worry about not being able to see child pedestrians while out driving. Nine out of ten motorists feel that parents do not do enough to keep their children safe and all children would benefit from a florescent glow. Some even go as far as suggesting that all children should be made to wear a compulsory orange school uniform so that their visibility is increased.
Special safety training should be implemented so that young children are aware of the dangers on the roads. They should be taught skills such as where it is safe to cross and how to judge distances of cars and motorcyclists. Not only will this decrease the risk of injury and fatality but also give motorists some peace of mind.
Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School said: “According to the road safety organisation, GEM Motoring Assist, the government’s resistance to keep British Summer Time all year round is causing death and injury to many young pedestrians and adults.”
