This Christmas give some thought to this

This Christmas give some thought to this

December is a killer month on our roads, so don’t let festive fun turn into funeral faces. Christmas parties, nights out and people rushing around Christmas shopping mean more traffic, more pedestrians and more risk of crashes. So make sure you:

1.Never EVER drink and drive. By playing this video you are agreeing that you are over 15 years old.

 

If you want to have a drink this Christmas, enjoy yourself but remember ANY alcohol increases your risk of crashing. Leave your car at home and make alternative arrangements to get home safely, for example:

– Choose a designated driver.
– Order a legal taxi.
– Use public transport.

 

2. NEVER take your eyes off the consequences

When driving always concentrate – ONE LAPSE CAN LAST A LIFETIME.

When walking always be careful and be aware of traffic, especially when crossing the road – RESPECT EVERYONE’S JOURNEY.

 

3. Slow down, don’t get caught up in the Christmas rush

By playing this video you are agreeing that you are over 15 years old.

Speeding is shameful. It’s a fact that speed is the biggest single killer on Northern Ireland’s road.

YOU CAN NEVER CONTROL THE CONSEQUENCES IF YOU SPEED.

 

4. Always wear your seatbelt

By playing this video you are agreeing that you are over 15 years old.

Not wearing a seatbelt is totally selfish – in a crash you could kill or seriously injure the other people with you in the vehicle as well as yourself.

Insist that everyone in the car always wears their seatbelt, front and rear. Remember – without a seatbelt it only takes one trip to kill! NO SEATBELT NO EXCUSE.

 

GO SAFE. IT’S THE BEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE THIS CHRISTMAS.
