Tipperary County Council support National Slow Down Day - Friday 19th October
An Garda Siochana will conduct a national speed enforcement operation ''Slow Down'' for a 24hr period from 07.00 hrs Friday 19th October to 07.00 hrs on Saturday 20th October 2018.
Last year, 2017 saw 157 people lose their lives on our roads, 8 of these were in Tipperary. Although the numbers are decreasing they are still far too high. Excessive and inappropriate speed is a major contributory factor in road traffic collisions. The higher the speed the greater the likelihood is of a collision happening and the more severe the outcome of that collision.
The objective of ''Slow Down'' is to reduce the number of speed related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads. Let us all play our part and slow down on our roads, let ''Slow Down'' day remind us of this important message.
REMEMBER: ROAD SAFETY MATTERS TO US LET IT MATTER TO YOU
