Take On The Challenge To Drive Away Your Bad Habits

Person Driving 2020

Local authorities and An Garda Siochana are appealing for people observing Lent to give up one more thing - bad driving. Regardless of religious inclination, three quarters of Irish people still use Lent as an opportunity to give up bad habits. The most common things to forgo for the 40-day period were food-related or social networks.

Road safety professionals say drivers should commit to a simple but effective Lent promise: make better choices out on the road and become a nicer person behind the wheel, share the road with that cyclist or pedestrian.
