A new road safety campaign involving wheelie bins and life-sized child stickers in Achill are an attempt to make Mayo roads safer as we head into a busy bank holiday weekend.
The stickers shaped to look like a child about to run out on the road have been placed on bins in the village of Keel in an effort to encourage motorists to slow down.
The road safety office of Mayo County council, working with local public representatives and the community, has launched the campaign to save young lives.
Local residents have put a sticker featuring a life-size image of a child on their household bins ("wheelie bins") as a visual reminder to drivers that a child might step into the street at any time while they're playing or distracted.
The idea is to put a human face with road safety rather than focusing on statistics.
