Let us pick you up so you get there safely this weekend

Let us pick you up so you get there safely this weekend

As we look forward the holiday weekend it looks like we might be spared having a lot of rain but it will certainly be cool with temperatures dropping to between 3 and 6 degrees at night. Something well worth watching out for this weekend is our partnership with the Road Safety Authority to tackle driver fatigue.

Decisions always have to be made when travelling. One of the most important things to consider is our safety and the safety of our passengers. While huge improvements have been made in reducing the number of people driving under the influence of alcohol it’s easy to forget the number one cause of accidents is generally fatigue. The decision to stop and take a break even though you may be “almost there”. Admitting when you feel tired and accepting that a later arrival time caused by taking a short break is way better than not arriving. Together with the Road Safety Association we are offering free coffees to pick you up at selected locations on Friday and Monday, the days when most people will be on the road.

Apart from the family fun days on the 30th May at the motorway service areas our A Cafes at those locations will remain open till 21.00 hrs daily starting immediately. Remember make the right decision, take a break and have a fabulous weekend wherever you are heading.
