It was reported last night that a man was tragically killed whilst out walking his dog. His dog was also sadly killed. Both were struck by vehicles as they tried to cross the busy Dual Carriageway of the A64 at Bilbrough near York. It was 18:55 on 3 Dec 2011.
This tragedy illustrates the need to wear hi-visibility clothing whilst exercising dogs at night.
Hi vis coats can also be obtained for your pets. See my article.
Even a Hi vis collar can be surprisingly effective – see target=”_blank”> Sox and Rufus wearing their reflective collars.
