The weather can make it difficult for us to see clearly when we are outside. And for other people using the road and pavement may find it difficult to see us. It is important that we can be seen at all times, especially when we are walking, cycling or scooting to and from school.
We could liven things up by wearing light, bright and cheery clothes when we are out and about. Fluorescent and reflective materials are the best!
Fluorescent is the bright, neon coloured material. It shows up in the daylight, at dusk and also in dull, misty weather. But it doesn’t show up in the dark.
Reflective material is special. It shows up very bright when a light shines on it. It shows up best at night. You can get reflective tape to put on your clothes and bags which will show up in car headlights.
If you are cycling in the dark make sure your lights are clean and in good working order. It is against the law to cycle at night without a white front light, a red back light and a red reflector at the back.
