How to stay bright and be seen near roads
Wearing the right clothing, and choosing the right route at night makes a huge difference to your safety.
What to wear:
- When it’s dull outside, wear bright, fluorescent or while.
- When it’s dark, wear night reflective gear e.g. reflective vests, sashes, or wristbands. You can also get reflective accessories such as clip-on reflectors, florescent arm bands, or special tape.
Where to walk:
- Choose well-lit walking routes.
- Try and cross the road at a place lit-up by street lights and/or buildings.
Cycling or using a scooter at night
If you’re cycling or using a scooter to get around at night – make sure you can be seen by traffic. As well as the usual reflective gear, cyclists must have a white light at the front and a red light at the back, as well one rear reflector.
