Pedestrian Safety

Please take extra care during winter months around Scruton and especially along Station Road to the Lane End where there is no pavement or street lighting. Remember:

Face the oncoming traffic. Where there is no pavement, keep to the right-hand side of the road, facing oncoming traffic. If you come to a sharp right-hand bend, it may be safer to cross the road so that oncoming traffic can see you.

Be visible at night. Wear or carry something light or fluorescent. Use reflective materials (armbands, sashes, waistcoats, jackets, footwear).

Look after the children. Young children should not be out alone on the pavement or road. Make sure your older children are aware of the need to take extra care at this time of year.

Finally. Put your mobile devices away!
