Be Wiser Insurance

Motorists in an area of Scotland are being urged to keep their headlights shining and reduce road deaths, it has been reported.

According to Shetland Today, Shetland local councillor Laura Baisley would like to see a by-law introduced making it compulsory to use dipped lights.

If such a rule was introduced, it may be that drivers in the area make fewer car insurance claims and save money on their policies.

This is because cover companies may see the threat of an incident on the roads quelled by such a move.

Safety and risk manager for the area Sandra Pearson stated that she could not see why a voluntary scheme could be added as part of the region's annual campaign for road safety over winter, according to the news source.

Earlier this month, the Shetland News reported that police have warned local drivers to take care in the event of dangerous weather conditions.
