Rapid Cabs Christmas safety messages

Waterford City’s Rapid Cabs and Winterval offer top five safety tips for going out this Christmas season

1. Plan your night out, tell someone where you are going and when you will be back.

2. You, your family or friends should never walk home alone. Remember, safety in numbers. If you have no other option, walk in well-lit areas.

3. Take care when carrying your handbag, smart-phone or tablet in crowded areas. Keep them in a safe location, within view.

4. Take care of your Christmas shopping and never leave it unattended, especially in your car.

5. Never ever drink and drive, and if you are celebrating over Christmas be careful as you might still be over the limit the next morning.

Christmas is a special time of year, especially for those in Waterford City. The City centre will enjoy its busiest time of the year with Christmas parties, Winterval, shopping and many other activities such as the largest ferris wheel in Ireland, ice skating and the Rotary memorial tree bringing the public in to celebrate this festive season.

Given where and when they work safety and security has always been paramount to Rapid Cabs. Practically no other industry understands the potential hazards if one is not cautious, especially during such a busy period.

That is why Rapid Cabs, supported by city centre publicans, have come together with five simple safety messages for those who intend to enjoy what the City has to offer this Christmas.

Rapid Cabs CEO Eric O’Brien, explains the importance of these messages, "In our industry we see it all. We have invested heavily over the past few years in technology that makes our service better and safer for the customer, but you cannot allow for the human factor. Waterford is a great City to run a business, shop and party. That is why messages like this are so important. They seem obvious but at such a busy time of year can easily be overlooked."

Nick Donnolly, Chair of Winterval commented, "City Centre safety is so important, especially at busy times like Christmas. We are delighted to support an initiative like this."

All Rapid Cabs drivers are fully Garda vetted, insured and licensed. Open and accessible 24 hours a day 365 days a year, Rapid Cabs has a computerised booking dispatch system from its local taxi call centre and has installed in-car computers in all of its taxis to ensure as such efficiency as possible. Its new App is available for free on Apple and Android.

    Perfidious AlbionThe recent statement by the UK’s Brexit Minister responsible for their leaving the European Union David Davis really threw a spanner in the political works last week. His remark that the joint text agreed between the UK and the EU concerning a soft Brexit for Ireland was more a statement of intent rather than the legal enforceable international agreement between both parties caused consternation in Europe and Ireland.Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney was quick to …
