Winter warning to drivers

POLICE are urging road users to make sure they prepare for winter.

The call comes as mornings and evenings get darker and is aimed at those people who use the county’s roads and pavements and need to be seen by others.

Superintendent Sean Bell, from the Force’s operations department, said: “Cyclists should ensure they have working lights on their bike and wear high visibility clothing as well as a correctly fitted helmet.

“Joggers should also take safety responsibly and ensure that they are also wearing high visibility clothing if they are jogging along a road.

“Of course, motorists are also reminded to make sure they use the most appropriate lights, at the most appropriate settings, when driving in the dark. They should also make sure that their tyres are roadworthy as wet and icy weather becomes more commonplace.”
