Public Health: visibility aids

Intervention

The trial compared visibility aids given to children versus no visibility aids. Children in classes in the intervention arm received a reflective and fluorescent slap wrap (a 30 cm x 3 cm x 0.3 cm item that can be worn around an upper arm or trouser leg and is readily removed), a reflective durable sticker (3 cm x 3 cm x 0.3 cm), a Department for Transport road safety educational booklet which included a section on the need to be seen in the dark and two posters. Letters were sent to parents informing them about the visibility aids and the importance of wearing them. Children in the control arm did not receive visibility aids and the additional material until the trial was complete.
