Lollipops carrying A road safety message ‘Never let a friend walk home drunk’ will be handed out to party goers in Mayo.

The plan is to give out the sugary treats to people coming from night clubs and late bars in an attempt to crack down on road deaths of pedestrians and to stop drunken brawls.

Road safety officials in Mayo claim this approach has worked in other countries where police “noticed an immediate decrease in rowdy activity and an increase in calming energy and awareness created around the message on the lollipop”.
