IRISH ROAD SAFETY WEEK OCTOBER 10th-14th
In cooperation the the Road Safety Authority of Ireland, Heffernan Tyres will be launching Irish Road Safety Week on Monday 10th October.
The aim of safety week is to get the public to think seriously about road safety and by their own actions, reduce the number of people killed on our roads.
As a result of this and other initiatives undertaken by the RSA in recent years, we have seen a considerable decrease in road deaths in Ireland. Some of the statistics are startling. For instance a 78% decrease in child fatalities in twelve years. Much of this is down to better awareness on the part of motorists as much as compliance with rules of the road. Businesses like Heffernan Tyres have a role to play in helping to educate and inform the public of safety issues where tyres and motoring are concerned. It is a responsibility that we take seriously. Our Manager Nigel is pictured below delivering a presentation to students at a local secondary school. (Cross and Passion, Kilcullen)
We have also arranged evening safety classes for our women motorists in conjunction with tyre manufacturers. These classes included presentations on basic safety tips as well as practical training on changing wheels when broken down on the roadside. We will advise when we plan to run another of these events as they have been very successful.
As part of our commitment to safety week Heffernan Tyres will be giving a free* pre-winter safety check to motorists which includes tyres,wiper,lights and brakes. This check is obligation free and we will also give away a limited number of gift safety packs containing Hi Vis jacket, tread depth gauge and an ice scraper. We will be advertising the event in our local press and of course on our website www.heffernantyres.com
