(CS) The Luxembourg police's monthly road safety campaign will be dedicated to pedestrians in December in a bid to encourage better visibility among the most vulnerable road users.

The December campaign follows a public appeal under the title “Gitt sichtbar”, urging pedestrians to wear reflectors and to ensure that they are visible to motorists during the darker mornings and longer evenings.

Last year, six pedestrians died in road accidents, with most of these incidents occurring in the dark and during the winter months.

Police will therefore be paying special attention to pedestrians during the current month, trying to raise awareness and improve their safety.
