Mr Noel Brett, Chief Executive of the Road Safety Authority urged students to be safe tonight if they are planning to go out and celebrate.
He said that today is a day for parents to be proud of their children’s achievements. “However, that pride could very quickly turn to grief if something tragic happens on the roads tonight,” he said.
He called for parents to talk to children about responsibility on the roads.
“Before they head out tonight, make sure you know who they will be going out with, where they are going, how they’re getting there and most importantly, how they intend to get home.”
