On today's programme Motoring correspondent Michael Sheridan on the continuing decline in car sales in 2013.

Prof Desmond O’Neill explains the new guidelines brought out by the Road Safety Authority lay down the law on who can or cannot hit the road.

And we meet the advocate offering media training to the children of gay parents.

Car Sales

Car Sales

New car sales are down nearly 19% on January last year. Does it mean that the new number plate system isn't working or could there be other reasons why sales of new cars are down. Michael Sheridan, Motoring Correspondent with the RTÉ Guide is in studio.

Driving Safely with a Medical Condition

It seems like a no brainer that you need to be medically fit to get behind the wheel of a car and new guidelines brought out by the Road Safety Authority lay down the law on who can or cannot hit the road.

Prof Desmond O’Neill, Director of the National Programme Office for Traffic Medicine, and Consultant Physician in Geriatric and Stroke Medicine at Tallaght Hospital, is in studio to give us the detail.

PUBLIC MEETING - Driving Safely with a Medical Condition is a public meeting taking place in the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland on Friday 22 February 2013 at 6.30pm. It will focus on medical fitness to drive. All welcome.
