Road Safety in TY

As part of the Road Safety Programme in Transition Year, students attended a talk on Road Safety Awareness and Responsibility provided by the Action Campaign for Education Against Road Tragedies (A-CEART).  A-CEART was founded in 2004 by Donegal woman Mary Clinton who has a deep interest in road safety.

Many of the students were impressed by the efforts of Mary Clinton in trying to raise awareness in schools, and at the end of the session, came up personally to thank Mary for giving of her time to try and encourage young people to take a more responsible attitude when it comes to road safety.  A number of DGS TY Students (Ciara Cousins, Helen Peck, Victoria Lewis and Mandy Leung) have volunteered to raise money through sponsorship by competing in the Dublin Mini-marathon in June.

A-CEART is funded solely by public donations and sponsorship and receives no public funding.  The A-CEART Motto is:  “Constant Road Carnage is No Accident. Taking Risks is No Accident. It’s A Choice, Your Choice. Choose Responsibility, Not Carelessness. It just might Save a Life, Your Life or that of your Mates!”
