As a runner, horse rider & cyclist I know what it’s like to feel vulnerable on the roads. As a car driver I am shocked on a daily basis at the number of cyclists, horse riders, runners & walkers that I come across who do not wear any High Visibility (Hi-Viz) clothing whist on the road. Hi-Viz clothing gives car drivers the very best opportunity to see you (from afar and closer) and react accordingly; reducing speed and giving space making the pedestrian/rider feel much safer. 

Without Hi-Viz clothing it is all to easy, especially from a distance to blend in with the verge and hedgerow!! 

Ive started this petition after a recent near miss.  I was driving my car to the stables one bright frosty morning, into low sunlight, suddenly two pedestrians came into view walking in the same direction as my car on my side of the road.  Had they been wearing Hi-Viz clothing I would have had a chance to see them from further away before the sun was dazzling me. Luckily I was going slow enough to react and avoid but this is not always the case! 

please support this petition, sign & share to save lives.
