Slow is the only way to go.

Byline: JENNY FRIEL

MISS Ireland Yvonne Ellard helped launch a new campaign yesterday urging young drivers to slow down.

Junior Minister Bobby Molloy was also present to lend his support to the National Safety Council's Only The Good Die Young campaign.

Road accidents are close to beauty Yvonne's heart - just last week her cousin died in a car crash. And three months ago 22-year-old Yvonne escaped death herself after a horrific car accident.

She said: "I really hope this campaign has a strong impact and makes people slow down."

The Safety Council's figures show of the 415 people who died last year in road accidents, 154 were young people and speeding was the main cause.

Already 151 people have been killed on Irish roads this year.
