National Slow Down Day 2016

By Liberty Insurance Ireland on 24 October 2016

As part of our #DriveSafer campaign we’re proud to support National Slow Down Day

If you’re driving today and notice traffic is a little slower than usual, there’s a good reason for it. It’s National Slow Down Day and Gardaí have been out since 7am enforcing ‘Operation Slow Down’, a national 24-hour initiative. The aim is to remind drivers of the dangers of speeding, with the objective of reducing the number of speed-related accidents on Irish roads.

So far this year, 148 people have been killed on the roads of Ireland – 24 more than this time last year. But you can make a real difference to these numbers. So today, and everyday thereafter, we’re asking you to make a conscious effort to stick to the speed limit.

Tips to help you #DriveSafer
