‘Be Seen’ this Winter

Hampshire Constabulary are on a mission to make cyclists ‘seen’ on the roads. The campaign was sparked after statistics revealed that between January 2011 and December 2015, 979 cyclists were killed or seriously injured across Hampshire and Isle of Wight roads. As part of the campaign, officers will be carrying out events across the county, hoping to encourage more cyclists to wear florescent clothing and have lights when they cycle.  Freebies will be given out including florescent rucksack covers, neck tubes as well as cycle lights.
