Safe Driving Practices and Tips

As drivers, we share the road with others who don’t have the protection we do in our cars. So, we have a duty to drive safely when we encounter a vulnerable road user and take responsibility for road safety. At AIG, we know that driving on busy roads may be challenging, for this reason we have created this Safe Driving Hub for you, with defensive driving practices, tips for driving on Irish roads, and more.
