Council launches ‘Be Safe Be Seen’ road safety campaign

Donegal County Council and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group have launched their 'Be Safe Be Seen' road safety campaign.

The public is being urged to wear bright coloured or hi viz clothing when walking or cycling this winter.

More than two thirds of fatal pedestrian collisions happen during the hours of darkness. Drivers are encouraged to check that both headlights are working and to use dipped headlights during day light hours.

Donegal's Mayor Frank McBrearty is supporting the campaign:
