Road Safety Show Streamed Into Schools Around The County

Date: 14-04-2021

An emotive, interactive presentation produced and delivered by Mayo County Council’s Road Safety Office in the Communications Department in conjunction with the emergency services and AXA Insurance is being streamed directly into young road users around the Country.

The AXA Roadsafety roadshow is a presentation (90 minutes long) aimed at students in transition year or above. It is an emotive interactive presentation produced by emergency service personnel working with the Communications Department of Mayo County Council. The aim of the presentation is to highlight the consequences of a collision, not only to a driver, but also to innocent victims such as pedestrians, passengers and other road users. Incorporating a graphic presentation depicting the aftermath of a real crash, emergency service personnel appear in person to describe their roles following a serious collision.

The event is now being run virtually as face-to-face delivery in a venue has been impacted by COVID-19. The event coordinated by the Communications Department of Mayo County Council is being availed of by Local authorities across the Country .

If you represent a school or college and would like this presentation delivered to your students free of charge, please register in advance for this webinar:

If you are a parent and would like your child to see the presentation, they can view the event free of charge on Facebook live on April 22nd, 2021 11:00 AM.

We strongly believe that intervention and education at an early stage are the most effective ways of changing attitudes and ultimately reducing the chances of young adults being involved in a fatal or serious injury collision in the future, something which I am very passionate about.
