Donegal gardaí urge the public to remember the basics of road safety
Donegal gardai are asking the public to remember the basics of road safety. They have reiterated their message of not to drive with alcohol, drugs or a combination of both in your system.

Two weeks ago, gardaí in Donegal arrested four people for drink-related offences and six arrests were carried out in relation to drug driving offences.
Gardaí say that while these figures are not sky high, they are still much too high.
Speed is a major contributor to road traffic collisions, gardaí are advising the public to drive
within the speed limit. People are asked to wear their seatbelt and ensure that others travelling with you are also wearing their seatbelts.
Gardaí are, once again, urging people not to use or hold their mobile phone while driving.
Those who enjoy running, walking or cycling are asked to wear high-visibility gear to ensure you are always visible to motorists. Gardaí are committed to working to reduce fatalities and serious injuries on the roads. They would like to thank those who have taken the message on board and are continuing to make a difference on our roads and in our lives.
