The Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster (YFCU) in association with Danske Bank is encouraging members to attend the YFCU Road Safety Event on the 7th and 8th December and in doing so is reminding members and their families to take care on the roads especially over the festive season.
Since the launch of its road safety campaign in 2010, YFCU has encouraged members to be aware of risks such as icy roads, dark evenings, high speeds and drink driving. With many rural communities having been left devastated by the loss of young lives on the roads, it is hoped this will remind members to be more cautious and ultimately reduce the number of potential accidents taking place.
This year’s Road Safety Event will take place at Cafre, Greenmount Campus on Monday 7th December and Cafre, Loughry Campus on Tuesday 8th December. The evenings will involve a PSNI talk, a RTC rescue demonstration by the NIFRS, and information from the DOE campaign ‘Share the Road to Zero’.
Vice president, Harry Crosby said: “The rural road safety campaign is something that is very important to us at YFCU and I would encourage everyone to become involved in these events in order to raise awareness of the issues facing road users, and to help reduce the number of casualties and serious injuries.”
