Malta’s drivers are being urged to ‘change their ways’ this Christmas.
Transport Malta has launched a new festive road safety campaign, inspired by the novel ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens.
The authority has produced a video, telling the story of a reckless motorist who is visited by a ghost and shown his bad driving habits.
The road safety message will also be promoted extensively on Malta’s number one radio station, 89.7 Bay during the Christmas period.
A spokesman for Transport Malta told 89.7 Bay: ‘During the Christmas period, everyone is kinder and more mindful of those around him.
‘Transport Malta hopes that this spirit of Christmas can also extend to our roads.
‘As we are mindful of others during this period, we should also be much more mindful of other road users.
‘We appeal to every driver on the road, every rider, every cyclist and every pedestrian to be respectful on the road.’
