Citroën Ireland has joined forces with Road Safety Ireland to support their new ‘Driving for Work’ Safe Driving Experience, which is now being offered at new purpose built Road Safety Experience Centre in County Monaghan.
Citroën will provide Road Safety Ireland with a New Citroën C3 Aircross and a Citroën C3, which will be used in the new training experience programme. The ‘Driving for Work’ Safe Driving Experience aims to build knowledge and awareness to the five causes of collision fatalities and serious injuries: speeding, drink / drug driving, distraction, seat belts and driving tried.
The training will take place in the world class training suite and drivers will experience winter driving, skid control and skid pan on the purpose built track using the very latest in immersive learning techniques, equipment and technology.
Carried out in a safe and controlled environment, the Citroën vehicles will be used to demonstrate correct steering and seating position, enhanced driving skills covering the latest safety features available and learn about vehicle dynamics. Training will be targeted at driving for work, new to the road – younger drivers, professional drivers, transition year students as well as post-accident and remedial driving courses.
Speaking about the new safety experience, managing director of Citroën Ireland 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."
