SCPs full of beanies - despite the weather
Fluorescent ‘beanie hats’ have helped Medway’s SCPs stay warm and bright this winter.
Andy Dickinson (left in picture), safer journeys officer, said: “Our patrols are used to braving all weather conditions but this winter has seen some extreme temperatures.
“We are advising drivers to help patrols by paying careful attention to them while they are on duty on our roads.
“SCPs help both children and adults cross the road safely and we ask drivers to be patient to ensure they can do this.”
Drivers in Medway have also been reminded to ensure that their vehicles are adequately cleared of ice and snow, especially lights, windows and roofs, to ensure drivers can see the roads and footpaths clearly. This also makes the SCPs safer.
