Rural group sets up road safety project

DOWN Armagh Rural Transport (DART) Partnership is launching a community-based driver safety and awareness project in Craigavon as part of Road Safety Week.

The Right Tracks project, funded by the Department of the Environment (NI), is aimed at drivers between the ages of 18-24 and drivers aged 69 years or above.

The project is delivered free to participants and aims to improve road safety awareness for eligible participants considered to be of most risk.

Right Tracks will deliver ROSPA-accredited driver training courses to groups and free confidential advice to drivers over 69 years of age who are possibly considering their future driving or travel options.

For further information on the Right Tracks project, please contact Alan Gilmore on (028) 3831 7810 or
