Bank Holiday weekend clubbers in County Mayo, Ireland had their night rounded off with a message to drive safely. Leading nightclubs and bars played a road safety message before revellers left for home.
“We wanted to reinforce to young people out enjoying their Bank Holiday weekend that they must drive safely - or else their lives, not just their weekend, could be ruined,” said Noel Gibbons, Mayo’s RSO. “Unfortunately the lives of many young people are lost in the wee small hours of the weekend, when they are returning home after socialising.'
The message was delivered by Conor Faughnan of AA Ireland, who pleaded with clubbers: 'If you have been drinking or are feeling tired please take a taxi, take a bus - enjoy your night but please don't become another statistic.'
