What's the news?
Citroen Ireland has announced a partnership with Road Safety Ireland to promote its new 'Driving for Work' experience that is now running at a purpose-built centre in Co. Monaghan. As part of the new scheme, Citroen Ireland will supply its C3 and C3 Aircross models for use in the training programme.
The Safe Driving Experience intends to increase knowledge and awareness to the five leading contributors to collision fatalities: speeding, drink or drug driving, distraction, seatbelts and driving while tired. By teaching drivers essential aspects such as the correct driving position as well as enhancing driver skills in a safe and controlled environment, it is hoped that it can contribute to a reduction in serious accidents and fatalities. Training is specifically targeted at those who are driving for work, new drivers, professional drivers and transition year students. Additionally, post-accident and remedial driving courses will also be offered.
Commenting on the announcement, Citroen Ireland's Managing Director, Pat Ryan, said: "We are delighted to support this dynamic, new driving initiative by providing Road Safety Ireland with the New Citroën C3 Aircross and a Citroën C3 which will be used throughout the Safe Driving Experience. Driver safety is a priority for the Citroën Brand with our vehicle safety features including Lane departure warning and coffee break alert, so we are delighted to be involved with this advanced safety driving experience."
