Gardai in Donegal and the PSNI are urging motorists to prioritise safety, emphasising the importance of slowing down, wearing seatbelts, and abstaining from alcohol before driving.
A collaborative cross-border road safety initiative, launched this morning at the Donegal-Derry border in Bridgend, focuses on addressing speeding motorists. At the launch, Milford-based Garda Supt. David Kelly, highlighted the significance of this joint effort, the first of its kind involving both forces on this specific issue.
Against the backdrop of nine fatalities on Donegal roads this year and a national death toll of 166, up from 132 in the same period last year, the campaign underscores the critical need for heightened awareness and adherence to road safety measures.
