At least nine young people who attended Donegal County Council’s Road Safe Road Show in the last five years have lost their lives on the roads.
The figures were revealed at this year’s event which is aimed at impressing on young people the dangers of the roads and how devastating the consequences of their driving behaviour can be. The figures do not include those who attended from schools across the border.
This is the ninth year the event has been running. Up to 2,800 students from schools and Youthreach programmes from both sides of the border attended the 90-minute long event over two days at the Aura Leisure Centre in Letterkenny.
