Road Safe Road Show taking place in Letterkenny over next two days

The annual Road Safe Road Show takes place over the next two days in Letterkenny, with over 3,000 Transition Year students attending, along with students from Donegal Youth-reach and Fas.

The show is now in its fourth year, and again features hard hitting testimony from emergency service personnel who attend crash scenes and people affected by crashes, including a young man who was very seriously injured in a collision.

Many students who attended the first two years of the roadshow are now on the roads themselves, with the Donegal Road Safety Working Group saying the perspective gained will hopefully affect their driving habits.

There is already evidence that crashes in Donegal are down, with Roadshow Organiser Eamon Brown saying it is a contributory factor..
