Students to attend Road Safe Road Show 09.10.18

OVER 3,000 young people from Donegal, Derry and Tyrone will attend this week’s Road Safe Road Show in the Aura Leisure Centre Letterkenny.
The Road Safe Road Show is a unique partnership between Donegal County Council and members of the Donegal Road Safety Working Group which provides a platform to positively influence the driving behaviour of young students as they commence their driving careers.
The Road Safe Show is in the Aura Leisure Centre Letterkenny this week on Tuesday 9th October at 11.00am & 1.30pm with a further show on Wednesday 10th October at 11.00am.
The show will be seen by over 3,000 students from the county's 27 post-primary schools as well as Youthreach centres and continues to receive excellent support from schools in Northern Ireland with the Police Service of Northern Ireland assisting with the registration of almost 800 students to attend from Derry and Tyrone.
Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer with Donegal County Council said “we are delighted that the schools continue to support the annual Road Safe Show. We need to get the message to the young people, that before they get into a car with a driver who exceeds the speed limit, or someone who may be under the influence of drink, or who has taken drugs, or not wearing their seatbelts, or who use their mobile phone while driving; to stop and think, because the trauma and devastation that is brought on your family and on the local community as a result of a road traffic collision is totally avoidable, no family should have to suffer the pain and loss of a loved one as a result of a road traffic collision”.
To date in 2018, 9 people have tragically lost their lives on Donegal roads, an increase of 4, for the same period in 2017. The Road Safe Show is in the Aura Leisure Centre Letterkenny this week on Tuesday 9th October at 11.00am & 1.30pm with a further show on Wednesday 10th October at 11.00am.
