HIGHWAYS officers are warning Huddersfield people to stay safe in the dark.
British Summer Time ends on Sunday and people are being reminded to make sure they can be seen on the roads.
Kirklees Council's road safety unit is urging pedestrians, cyclists and riders to be seen in the dark when the clocks go back and it gets darker earlier in the evening.
* Wearing something fluorescent is the best way to be seen on dull dark days. Wearing something reflective is most effective at night.
* Armbands, sashes and belts that are both reflective and fluorescent are three times more likely to be seen than white ones.
* Having something white or light-coloured will help drivers to see you. Dark clothing may be practical - but won't keep you safe!
* Parents should attach something reflective and fluorescent to their children's buggies.
* For older children, winter coats, jackets and trainers that have reflective strips attached would be ideal.
A spokesman said: "Motorists can play an important part in reducing road injuries by taking care that their lights work, are clean and properly adjusted.
"Windscreens should be clear of condensation, wiper blades should be in good condition and the screen wash bottle should have plenty of water in it.
"Cyclists and motorcyclists should also make sure their lights work."
Clr Martyn Bolt, Kirklees Cabinet member for transport matters, said: "Now that dark nights are here - and sometimes mornings are dull - people should wear something bright and take extra care when using roads."
