Stay safe when summertime ends
Penny Thorpe, principal road safety officer with Capita Symonds, has urged road users in Gwent to take extra care from this Monday.
Penny said: “For many drivers, Monday evening’s rush hour will be the first time they have been out and about in darkness for six months and they may not be aware that not all their lights are working.
“Pedestrians may also be unused to being out in poor light conditions and should make sure they are wearing something bright and, if possible, reflective.”
Gwent Police have produced a leaflet with seasonal road safety advice for road users.
