The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has urged drivers to look out for vulnerable road users as the clocks go back this week (October 27th).

Cyclists and pedestrians are being advised to "be seen and be safe", as the reduced visibility can cause them to be harder to spot.

RoSPA is encouraging cyclists to wear fluorescent clothing in daylight and reflective attire in the dark, explaining that cycles must have front and rear lights switched on when there is no light.

Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA’s chief executive, said: "We urge drivers to take extra care and vulnerable road users to be seen and be safe. But we also argue that an extra hour of evening daylight could help to save lives and reduce injuries during the colder, darker months."

Mr Mullarkey noted that RoSPA is pushing for Parliament to support a move to Single/Double Summer Time.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801652577-ADNFCR
