How government-issue reflective arm band left me looking like a badger and put a biker in a river

You hear it quite often: “There’s a quare drop in the even’s.” You don’t have to be fluent in Ulster Scots to know it’s getting dark at about twenty past eight.

Like the sand on a Donegal beach the summer has slipped through our fingers and from now we can expect gloomier days, darker evenings and longer nights.

The optimist sees romantic hours spent by a glowing fire with Netflix and popcorn. The pessimist laments the drudgery of travelling to and from work in the wind and the rain while the realist sees the balance of both while accepting there is an additional element of an increased danger on our roads.

The Road Safe NI Awards have just been launched with an opportunity to praise those who help to ensure all road users are safe. Some people go to incredible lengths, giving their time and expertise in an effort to prevent the carnage that sadly we so often read about. It’s important they are recognised for the lifesaving work they do.
