The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has called for action to stop road deaths across Scotland.

The group wants drivers to keep an eye out for vulnerable road users and watch their speed during the darker nights, with pedestrians being reminded that it is hard for motorists to see them if dark clothing is being worn.

Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, said: "The good news of a continuing drop in road deaths in Scotland in 2012 is marred by the increase in pedestrian and cyclist deaths and casualties."

Mr Clinton explained that RoSPA must "redouble" its efforts to ensure pedestrians do not pay the price of more walking and cycling.

He cited more 20mph schemes and safer pavements as ways to create a safer environment for motorists, along with safe cycling networks and crossing locations.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801654625-ADNFCR
