The Road Safe Show safety message was delivered to Donegal, Derry & Tyrone students once again today in the Aura Leisure Centre Letterkenny.
It is estimated that over 3,000 students have received the safety message over the past two days.
The Road Safe Road Show is a unique partnership between Donegal County Council and members of the Donegal Road Safety Working Group which provides a platform to positively influence the driving behaviour of young students as they commence their driving careers. The show has been students from the County's twenty-seven post-primary schools and six Youthreach centres and the show continues to receive excellent support from schools in Northern Ireland with the Police Service of Northern Ireland assisting with the registration of over 900 students to attend from Derry and Tyrone.
It is a sad fact that almost everyone in this County knows someone who was killed or seriously injured in road traffic collisions in Donegal. This show offers our young people the opportunity to learn about the consequences of poor driving behaviour on our roads. The hope is that the show will have a positive influence on young people and help keep them safe on the roads in the future.
To date 118 people have lost their lives as result of a road traffic collision, 5 of these on Donegal’s roads.
