Clocks Change This Weekend.

At 1.00 a.m. on Sunday (tomorrow) morning, 28th March 2021, clocks go forward one hour.

Put simply, we are all losing one hour’s sleep tonight, but the trade-off is worth it.

From tomorrow there will be “a great stretch in the evenings” signaling that summer isn’t too far away. We may not be able to travel far during lockdown, but at least we’ll have an extra hour or two in the evenings to get outdoors.

Road Safety Tips for Pedestrians from the Road Safety Authority, (RSA).

Getting outdoors is vital in maintaining everyone’s mental and physical health, but walkers, runners and joggers remember to always increase your visibility!

Throughout the day, and even on a bright evening, wear a high visability jacket, reflective armband or other reflective clothing to ensure you can be seen on roads.
It’s vital that drivers can see pedestrians from a distance.

In addition, remember to always find a safe place to cross roads, and where there is no footpath; walk, jog or run on the righthand side of the road, facing oncoming traffic and keeping as close to the side of the road as is possible.

Teaching children the Safe Cross Code (see video above) is very important also. For more pedestrian safety tips visit the Road Safety Authority’s website by clicking HERE.

Roll on those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer!
