Noel Gibbons Road Safety Officer IN Mayo is warning drivers to guard against complacency when it comes to fatigue, saying tiredness increases the risk of collision as drivers become less aware of what’s happening around them.

Mr Gibbons is advising drivers to ensure that they are properly rested before setting off, and to take breaks every two hours or so.
