Donegal Live to Play ambassador,
Brian O’Donnell, Road
Safety Officer said “This is a great opportunity to
remind all road users about their road safety
responsibilities. Far too many communities in
Donegal have suffered the loss of a loved one as a
result of a road traffic collision and we hope this
initiative will help to prevent further deaths...
Road safety is everyone’s responsibility and
ultimately it is up to all road users to be aware of
the dangers and to treat the roads with the respect
they deserve. Too often motorists take a risk and
make the wrong decision. Is that risk worth a life?”
