Donegal motorists urged to take part in national Slow Down Day 26.08.15

DONEGAL County Council is encouraging motorists to take part in National Slow Down Day which runs for 24 hours from 7am this Friday.
Last year again saw an increase in road deaths across the country including Donegal with 195 fatalities nationally.
So far this year the death toll stands at 106.
National Slow Down Day is supported by the Road Safety Authority, Donegal County Council and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group and other partner stakeholders.
Donegal road safety officer Brian O’Donnell said: “We appeal to each and every one of you to play your part in reducing the tragedy that road fatalities and serious injury collisions bring upon families in Donegal. Please be conscious that road safety is everyone’s responsibility.”
Public and private sector fleet operators are also being asked to participate in the initiative by informing employees of the 'Slow Down' message.
Drivers are also asked to turn on their dipped headlamps to show support and increase their visibility.
The overall aim of the National ‘Slow Down’ day is to reduce the number and severity of road traffic collisions and to demonstrate that it is every motorist’s responsibility to ensure that the roads are safe for everyone.
