Reminder to use reflectors in the dark

In autumn, as it gets darker, residents are asked to take care of the safety and visibility of themselves and fellow people in the dark.

The easiest way is to wear a reflector. A reflective vest is best, but you can also use a flashlight, such as a built-in mobile phone.

Deputy Head of the Communication Department of the Road Traffic Safety Directorate Mārtiņš Mālmeisters also addressed drivers: “You need to be double-observant in this twilight and dark season, firstly also by reducing speeds at pedestrian crossings, at public transport stops and in other places where visibility might not be good.”

The use of reflective elements is strongly recommended for pedestrians, but it is mandatory for drivers of electric scooters, bicycles, and other micro-mobility tools.
