Be Bright Be Seen!

12th Nov 2018

Road Safety NI’s message during the Winter Months is  ‘Be Bright Be Seen’ and Wear Your Seatbelt.

At this time of year, students need to be particularly vigilant. Limited visibility during dark mornings and evenings, along with heavy traffic and the excitement surrounding the Christmas season, can increase the likelihood of serious, and sometimes fatal, accidents.

Young people should wear reflective clothing and high visibility items, especially during the dark mornings and evenings, when travelling between home, bus stops and school.

All school buses used to transport pupils are fitted with seatbelts and as always, pupils must wear them at all times when travelling to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey.

Additional information for parents/guardians of students who are transported to and from school by the EA Home to School Transport Service is available on the EA website ‘Safe School Transport’ leaflets.
