Free coffee for fatigued drivers today 01.08.16

EXHAUSTED Bank Holiday drivers are being urged to pick up a free coffee today (Monday) at Applegreen service stations to help cut the carnage on the nation's roads.
The 'Driver Reviver' campaign run by the Road Safety Authority (RSA) in association with the service station chain follows the worst week for fatal road accidents on Irish roads in ten years.
Thirteen road users were killed in the space of six days last week including five young people in two Donegal accidents.
A total of 106 people have lost their lives in road crashes so far this year - an 18 per cent increase on 2015, latest RSA figures show.
“These deaths should serve as a reminder to us all that using the road is the most dangerous thing we do each day. All it takes is a split second for tragedy to strike," said RSA chief executive Moyagh Murdock in a statement.
Hundreds f thousands of Irish motorists and passengers are on the move today as they travel home from various bank holiday activities.
Meanwhile, is the fourth year of the free coffee scheme for fatigued drivers on bank holidays - statistically among the worst periods for serious crashes.
Applegreen has provided thousands of free cups of coffee in that time.
Pick yours up today between 2pm and 8pm at Applegreen service stations nationwide including Buncrana, quoting 'Driver Reviver' or 'RSA'.
