LETTER: Make sure cars can see you

If you are walking on roads or highways at night or when visibility is poor, please, “Be Seen.”

If you are walking on roads or highways at night or when visibility is poor, please, “Be Seen.”

It only takes a moment to add a couple of strips of high visibility tape on your outerwear.

A simple “X” on the back and strips on your wrists will make you visible.

Winlaw fire rescue wants this to be accessible for everyone, to begin it will be available at the Winlaw store bulletin board.

We met with the students at Winlaw Elementary and the Whole School and have initiated our “Be Seen” campaign in all schools in the Slocan Valley.

We want to keep it simple “Be Seen” be safe.

Plans to have tape available at public transit stops in Slocan, Perry’s Siding and Winlaw are in the works.
