Sinn Féin councillor Packie McDonald has welcomed the news from RSA (Road Safety Authority) that this year there have been no road deaths in the Newry and Mourne area compared to the 22 lives that were tragically lost last year in the area.

This announcement has taken place before the World day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims which is held on the third Sunday of November every year.

Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor McDonald said,

“The World day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims takes place this Sunday the 18th November where it will honour 33,631 deaths on Irish roads since 1959. Thankfully we have no road deaths this year in the Newry and Mourne area.

“However, I would still like to express my deepest sympathy to all those families that have lost a loved one due to a road traffic incident. Sunday the 18th November is a day to remember those who died or were injured from road crashes and the plight of their loved ones who must cope with the consequence of their deaths or injuries.

McDonald added, “I would like to stress the importance for road users to drive carefully to prevent accidents happening on our roads, and I hope that this time next year I will be able to deliver the same positive message that no one has been killed in this area due to a road traffic incident.
