As the clocks go back this weekend, road users have been urged to take care in the darker conditions.
Environment Minister Alex Attwood has warned people to make sure they are visible and to reflect changing conditions in the way they travel.
“Think about conditions and reflect these in how you drive, ride, cycle or walk,” he said.
The clocks go back one hour at 2am on Sunday.
