Mum's the word for young drivers in Ireland
Young drivers in Ireland are being asked to make a Mother’s Day gift of promising to drive safely all year as part of a campaign launched at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology in Castlebar.
The campaign is being co-ordinated by the Students’ Union, in association with Mayo County Council’s road safety team. The campaign involves distributing leaflets and screening a video which will also be promoted via social media sites.
Verity Spencer, Students’ Union vice-president, said: “A third of the campus is within the age bracket at risk, so this Mother’s weekend we will be spreading the message to all young drivers that your mother aspires to see you do well in college, while driving carefully and respecting all road users.”
Noel Gibbons, Mayo’s RSO, said: “This latest campaign asks young drivers to think about treating this Mother’s Day like it’s your last, then spend the rest of the year making sure it isn’t. The promise we want these young people to make is ‘Mam, I promise I'll be careful’.”
