Road Safety Seminar for Transition Year students Tomorrow

Garda Forensic Collision Investigator, (Tipperary Divisional Traffic Corps) M/s Annastatia Murphy reports:-

“A Road Safety Seminar for Transition Year students will be held at LIT Thurles on tomorrow Thursday May 4th 2017. This day will focus on raising road safety awareness.

Students from the District of Thurles will be in attendance on both days. This is the 7th successive year that this event has taken place, however it is the first year it is being held outside of the An Garda Síochána College.

Previously the event has been held at An Garda Síochána College, Templemore, however due to the rapid and recent increase in Garda students, the college are unable to facilitate this year. In February 2017, we held a similar event in St Patrick’s Campus of the Mary Immaculate College, Thurles. For tomorrow’s event, LIT Thurles have graciously facilitated us on their campus.

Approximately 180 students from CBS Thurles and Presentation School Thurles are expected to be in attendance. An additional 25 persons will also be in attendance to include, guest speakers, VIPs and teachers. The event is expected to commence at 10.00am, ending at 3.00pm.

As this seminar is focussing on Road Safety, we have invited a number of subject relevant guests to participate. These will include representatives from the Road Safety Authority, An Garda Síochána Traffic Corps and a serious injury collision survivor.

The event has been a huge success in the past and has received very positive feedback, in promoting road safety and in turn helping to reduce serious and fatal road traffic collisions.”
