As the days get longer it is a good time to remind everyone of the increased dangers faced by vulnerable road users - pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

Inspector Brian Poole, head of Tayside Divisional Road Policing, said: “I would ask that everyone using the roads ensures they are properly prepared and equipped for whatever activity they plan. This should include safety checks on vehicles, motor cycles and pedal cycles together with the use of suitable hi-visibility clothing and helmets where appropriate.”
