Drivers Urged to be Part of 'Yellow Triangle' Road Safety Scheme in Powys

Drivers in the county are being encouraged by Powys County Council to carry a card that contains potentially life-saving information in the event of a collision.

The yellow triangle sticker will accompany the card, which must be displayed in the bottom left-hand corner inside the windscreen and out of the driver’s field of view.
