Road safety campaigner lobbies government on bike helmet campaign

Mary Clinton of A-CEART, a road safety campaigner, will be lobbying Education Minister Richard Brouton and the Road Safety Authority  regarding the size of school lockers, which are currently not big enough to hold a child’s bike helmet. She feels that school children will either not cycle to school, or will do so without a helmet, for fear of their helmet being stolen in school. She has contacted a number of schools and has found the problem is apparent in most schools in Ireland.
