Road Safety Vehicle Roadshow

06 October 2016

On Saturday 8 October, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council will be teaming up with Newtownabbey Road Safety Committee members to hold their annual Road Safety Vehicle Roadshow. The roadshow, which will take place in the Valley Leisure Centre car park from 10am to 2pm, will help raise awareness of road safety measures and improve air quality by allowing motorists to have vehicle emissions testing, headlight testing and a tyre safety check.

Using equipment provided by the Roads Service, Environmental Health Officers will check the amount of pollution contained within cars’ exhaust fumes. If emissions are too high, motorists will be advised to have their vehicle serviced. Employees from Magowan Tyres and ‘Bailies Auto Refinishers’ will also be carrying out tyre safety checks and headlamp beam assessments.
Mrs Pat Martin, Chair of the Road Safety Council for Northern Ireland commented: “We welcome the joint effort between Newtownabbey Road Safety Committee and Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council at the roadshow. Such collaboration should be encouraged and can only serve to promote the health and wellbeing of the residents of the Borough.”
