At  the launch  Over the festive period, there will be a determined focus by An Garda Síochána on high risk behaviour such as excessive and inappropriate speed, drink and drug driving and the non-wearing of seatbelts.

Gay Byrne, the ex radio and tv presenter and now Road Safety Authority Chairman said “As we enter the final days of 2012 and the beginning of a new year, I want us to all to remember these people and to remember that all it takes is a split second for a serious injury or worse to happen. Our message, as always, is simple – don’t take risks on the road. Slow down, wear your seatbelt, never ever drink or drug drive and make sure you get home safely this Christmas.”

Timely words so take heed and remember with the bad road conditions forecast this holiday season stay safe on our roads.
