A number of road accidents occurred last week where cars hit pedestrians, and in some cases the consequences were fatal. According to the initial information none of these pedestrians had used reflective clothing or accessories.
“It can therefore be concluded that, unfortunately, pedestrians do not care about their safety,” Jančevskis said.
The police representative said pedestrians often believe that drivers see them in the dark. In reality, drivers see pedestrians without reflectors only when it is too late, so it is important for pedestrians to think about their safety. On the other hand, it is important for drivers to equip their vehicles with winter tires and ensure that the technical condition of their vehicles is on par.
