Be Bright & Be Seen

 5 Top Tips on How to Be Bright & Be Seen

With the nights getting darker earlier, here are five top tips on how to be bright and be seen.

  1. Brightly coloured fluorescent clothing shows up well in daylight and at dusk when you’re heading to and from school.

  1. If you’re out and about when it’s dark, wear reflective gear to make sure you can be seen in car headlights. Reflective vests, sashes or wristbands work well. Remember, fluorescent clothing doesn’t work after dark!

  1. Don’t forget to accessorise! Even small items such as clip-on reflectors armbands and stickers on your outfit or schoolbag are a great way to improve your visibility.

  1. If you like to cycle, remember that it’s the law to have clean and working lights at night (white at the front, read at the back), as well as a rear reflector. It’s good to fit spoke reflectors to.

  1. Of course, ‘Being Bright’ isn’t the only way to stay safe. If you’re out at night, choose routes and crossing places that are well lit and remember to always use the Green Cross Code.
