LET’S look out for each other – that’s the message of a road safety campaign being supported by Hampshire County Council.

The council is backing Brake’s National Road Safety Week campaign Let’s Look Out for Each Other which takes place this week.

It asks all road users, whether they are pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists or drivers, to take the time to think about others’ safety and help reduce the number of casualties on Hampshire’s roads.

Everyone on the roads is being urged to take extra care during all weathers and pedestrians, cyclists and motorbikers are urged to wear bright reflective clothing.

Councillor Sean Woodward, executive member for economy, transport and environment, said: ‘With the nights drawing in and the change in the weather, driving conditions can become more difficult quite quickly.

‘By making sure we can all see and be seen, and looking out for others on the roads, we can all help keep Hampshire’s roads safe.’

The council has a number of road safety activities planned during the week. For details call the road safety team on 01962 846100.
