Cork City Council Road Safety Idea for Christmas

The festive season is here again and Cork City Council would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Unfortunately, celebrations at this time of year are sometimes marred with the news of a serious or fatal road collision. Drink driving as we all know is often a contributing factor, so please, think about the journeys you will need to make during the festive period and if you plan to have a few drinks leave the car at home.

Plan ahead by booking a taxi, organising a minibus to pick you and your friends up or agree on a designated driver. A novel way of doing this is by using the ‘Gift a Lift’ road safety initiative.

Committing to provide one lift home this festive season is simple and low cost, but it ultimately could save the life of a friend or family member.
