Gaybo had a safety tip for every­one in the au­di­ence

Bray People - - Bray People -

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.’
