“Be Bright Be Seen”, MRSP road safety advice for dark evenings

Merseyside Road Safety Partnership (MRSP) has released a short video called “Be Bright Be Seen” to help to keep children safe this autumn, by making sure they can be seen by motorists.

Now that the clocks have gone back, and the early dark nights are here, it is an important time of year for road safety, when children can be travelling to and from school in darkness.

MRSP was created in 2007 to combat the rising number of deaths and serious injuries on the roads of Merseyside. The partnership is made up of the Merseyside councils, public services, transport partners, and the Merseyside community. It is also supported by Highways England, North West Ambulance Service, and the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office.

The aim of the partnership is to ensure the safety of all road users while travelling in and around Merseyside, through providing guidance, education, adopting technology that saves lives and also by working with the people of Merseyside.
