Gaybo had a safety tip for everyone in the audience
GAY BYRNE made a surprise visit to Bray on Monday to promote the Road Safety Authority’s ‘Check it Fits Roadshow’ at the Bray Retail Park.
The RSA has conducted research recently, revealing that three out of four parents are fitting their child car seats incorrectly.
Similarly, almost half of the child car seats checked would have provided little or no protection to the child in the event of a crash.
Child car seat installation experts were on hand at Bray Retail Park last Monday to demonstrate how to choose and correctly install child restraints in cars to parents, grandparents and guardians.
Road Safety Authority Chief Executive, Noel Brett said ‘Children are being needlessly killed and seriously injured on our roads every year, possibly as a result of being unrestrained in the car. We all need to take responsibility for our children’s safety on the roads. Give yourself that peace of mind that your child is travelling safely.’
