With the clocks going back on Sunday 27th October, we’re going to be travelling in the dark a lot more. IAM RoadSmart has written up some top tips about riding and driving in the dark.
It’s not just drivers and riders who need to be more careful, there are vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists that need to be aware of the dangers too. IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards, Richard Gladman, has put together some tips to keep road users safe.
Richard said: “It will soon be that time of the year where our daily commute is all done in the dark, remember your headlights will be your lifeline so keep them clean and make sure they are working properly. It is amazing how different a road looks at night so take extra care and allow extra space and time in areas where vulnerable road users are likely.”
