Fall/Winter safety tips

Shorter days means there are more pedestrians and cyclists are out in the dark when it's harder for drivers to see them. Wet roads mean it takes longer for vehicles to stop. Which means, that as we shift into winter, all road users need to take extra care. Remember, road safety is everyone's responsibility.
