A few tips to help kids heighten their road visibility.

Wear bright colored clothes

Getting to school should be no more treacherous in fall than in summer. Autumn weather may, however, make it harder for motorists to see school kids. And if the children are wearing drab colors, it could very well be too late before motorists even notice them.

A few tips to help kids heighten their road visibility:
• Bright colors are easier to see on the road (up to 150 meters). White, yellow and orange and neon fabrics show up especially well in the dark.
• Small fry are smart to wear reflecting figures, either around their necks or sewn on to their outerwear.
• Outerwear with reflective strips that pick up headlight beams are particularly practical.

Kids on bikes should also make sure that their bikes lights are in good functioning order both front and rear; the wheels should be equipped with spoke reflectors.

Children are also less likely to be overlooked if they wear wrap-around Velcro reflecting bands on the legs of their jeans or trousers. Being clearly visible is not enough, of course. A lot depends on correct behavior in traffic. Vehicles cannot stop as quickly on rain-slicked, leaf-covered roads. Children should play it safe and stick to marked crossovers. In no case should they dart into the street in front of or behind parked cars.
