By the end of April this year, 22 people had tragically died on Northern Ireland’s roads. That’s why, right now, you need to take extra care on the roads.
As a driver, a pedestrian, a cyclist or a motorcyclist the only safe choice is to treat the road as if your life and other lives depend on it – because they do.
Follow these 5 rules every time you use the road and you will significantly reduce your risk of killing someone.
1. Follow the rules of The Highway Code for Northern Ireland every time you use the road. The Highway Code could keep you out of prison and save you from killing others or being killed whether you are a driver, a motorcyclist, a pedestrian or any other type of road user.

2. SLOW DOWN! Remember – THE FASTER THE SPEED THE BIGGER THE MESS.
3. NEVER EVER DRINK AND DRIVE.
4. Always pay attention and stay alert – ONE LAPSE CAN LAST A LIFETIME.
5. Always wear your seatbelt, front and rear – NO SEATBELT. NO EXCUSE.
Share this page with all your friends and family whether they are drivers, pedestrians, cyclists or motorcyclists because EVERY road death is one too many.
SHARE THE ROAD TO ZERO.
