Book Description The Collins Press, 2010. Paperback. Condition: BRAND NEW. Ireland's record for road safety is dismal: nearly every day brings news of yet another horrific crash resulting in serious injury or loss of life. Impact tells the human story behind the stark statistics. Grieving families and injured victims describe how a crash that is over in seconds can devastate lives forever. Their insights into coping with unexpected grief, and the shock of injury are harrowing and moving. Interviewees include former government minister Jim McDaid TD, Galway boy racers, and Micilín Feeney, left brain-damaged after a drink-driving accident. Those working on the front line in emergency services - gardaí, fire officers, medical personnel - are given a voice, while road safety experts discuss the facts behind our collision culture. Impact is the first detailed account of road traffic accidents in Ireland. It is essential reading for everyone, from experienced drivers to those about to get behind the wheel for the first time. 240 pages. 19.2 x 13 x 2.4 cm. Seller Inventory # 8536
