'In-vest' in road safety campaign
Mayo County Council and Garda Siochana have teamed up to encourage pedestrians and cyclists to make sure that they can be clearly seen at night.
The partners are distributing hi-visibility vests at Garda stations around the county and all Garda cars are carrying a stock of the vests to give out to poorly lit pedestrians and cyclists.
Noel Gibbons, Mayo’s RSO, said: “We are delighted that Gardai are handing out the high-visibility vests because it helps to hammer home our Be Safe, Be Seen message.”
