§ Sir R. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that white belts with an orange day-glow stripe make children more visible to drivers of vehicles at night; and if he will seek to arrange to have some worn by schoolchildren as an experiment in road safety.
§ Mr. Marsh
In our publicity we are encouraging pedestrians, particularly children, to wear white or light coloured clothing at night. Fluorescent material is useful in twilight, but has no particular advantages in darkness. An experiment on the lines suggested would be a matter for local education authorities.
