Whether you are a pedestrian, cyclist or driver you need to take care of yourself and others on the roads. Follow the rules of road as they are there to protect you and those around you. We want you to all arrive alive so follow the advice of the Road Safety Authority at www.rsa.ie

Walk on the path or if there is none at the edge and against the traffic. Use a reflector. Remember the hedgehog? Look both ways. Don’t risk a tight crossing. When cycling: wear a helmet and reflector. Be Careful not to leave trousers/skirt loose by thechain. Stay on your side of the road and use hand signals. Don’t weave in and out of traffic and don’t cycle on footpaths.
