December is a killer month on our roads. 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
If you want to have a drink this Christmas, enjoy yourself but remember ANY alcohol increases your risk of crashing.
2. NEVER take your eyes off the consequences
When driving always concentrate – ONE LAPSE CAN LAST A LIFETIME.
3. Slow down, don’t get caught up in the Christmas rush
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
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. NO SEATBELT NO EXCUSE.
GO SAFE. IT’S THE BEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE THIS CHRISTMAS.Facebook and Twitter for daily road safety tips and Highway Code Rules.
