The users are elderly people who walk around the roads usually dressed in the dark.
"The Civil Guard yesterday distributed reflective vests to pedestrians that are considered risky. They are elderly people who walk around the roads usually dressed in dark clothes. The agents traveled to a road in Carballo, where they established a device in which they warned pedestrians of the risks they run if they do not wear clothes that make them more visible. Also present was the coordinator of the DGT in Galicia, Maria Victoria Gomez Debar, who stressed that this is the worst time of the year because there is little visibility and the weather conditions are very adverse," says Toni. Debar added that "the use of safety clothing with reflective tape is essential for a passerby to be seen and can be seen."
