New road safety campaign urges road users to share roads safely as traffic levels increase No Repro Fee. Assistant Commissioner Paula Hilman, Roads Policing and Community Engagement, An Garda Síochána (left) and Ms Liz O’Donnell, Chairperson of the RSA (right), pictured with Pedestrian, Brian Higgins and Cyclist, Clara Shanahan, as the Road Safety Authority (RSA) and An Garda Síochána have launched a new road safety campaign urging road users to be extra cautious as the roads get busier, and to realise that they have changed due to increased numbers of cyclists and pedestrians on Irish roads. It follows the lifting of COVID-19 travel restrictions which now allow travel within a 20km limit of the home or within the county boundary. The new road safety campaign ‘We’re on the road back. Make it a safer one’, reminds us that as we gradually begin to leave our homes more, we’ll see more cars back on the road and many more pedestrians and cyclists about. As we adjust to a new normal, we can choose a new normal for our roads too – making them a safer place for everyone. Pic. Robbie Reynolds
