National Slow Down Day

An Garda Siochana and the Road Safety Authority have called on motorists to reduce their speed in the run up to the Bank Holiday weekend.

They have also asked for the public to support ‘Slow Down’ day which began at 7 a.m this morning and runs until 7 a.m tomorrow morning.

As part of the ‘Slow Down’ day, Applegreen garages will be giving out free cups of coffee today at participating stores when you mention the words ‘RSA’.

Statistics show over the past two years, the June Bank holiday weekend has been the most dangerous weekend on Irish roads with 11 fatalities and over 80,000 people caught speeding.
