KIRKLEES Council is urging people to take extra care on roads when the clocks go back at the weekend.
From 1am on Sunday, British Summer Time will end and the clocks will be put back by one hour – meaning people will be driving to and from work in the dark.
Kirklees Council is reminding motorists and pedestrians of its Be Safe Be Seen campaign, which encourages people to make sure they are visible in the dark.
Cllr Martyn Bolt, council cabinet member for highways, said: “Make sure you can be seen in the dark when you are out and about.”
The campaign is particularly aimed at pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders.
They are encouraged to wear fluorescent clothing during dull, dark days or reflective gear at night.
But car drivers and motorcyclists are also being targeted. They are being urged to make their vehicles visible by making sure they are clean – especially the lights.
