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?”
