The Surreal Poster Series series has been a program that was highly subscribed to. Delegates are able to download the poster series for free, featuring five posters focusing on the five key risk factors in road safety. Now, YOURS is featuring a focus on each poster explaining the risk factor behind each theme. This week, we focus on visibility....
It is unlikely that we can prevent road crashes if we cannot see the road ahead and what is on it. This might be so very basic and even simplistic but in fact visibility can be a challenge in many countries with insufficient road lighting and vehicles with malfunctioning lights.
So, if you are a pedestrian, make sure you:
Wear white or light colors so you are more visible
Wear retro-reflective strips on your clothes, backpack, or anything your are carrying
Walk only where there is good lighting;
And walk facing oncoming traffic.And if you are on bicycle do not forget to use:
Front, rear and wheel reflectors;
And retro-reflective jackets or vests, if possible.
