An Garda Síochána in Kildare have launched their Christmas Road Safety Campaign, which will run until Wednesday, January 2, 2019.
The Campaign will involve increased patrols and checkpoints in towns, villages and main roads as well as back roads over the festive period and will target:
- drink / drug driving;
- dangerous / careless driving;
- driving while using mobile phones;
non-wearing of seat belts as well as other offences.
Gardai are appealing to all road users to act responsibly and safely on the roads throughout the Christmas and New Year period.
They want to specifically warn drivers of the dangers of driving the morning after a night of drinking, when driving could still be impaired by alcohol.
