In fact, research from Allianz, conducted by Red C Research in October 2018, shows that 48% of those who experienced an emergency called a tradesperson first (for example a plumber or electrician), while only 14% called their home insurer first.

Find the Courage to Say No to ‘Just the One’

As citizens of modern Ireland, we need to firmly outline what is acceptable on our roads and emphasize that driving after even one drink is not welcome. To support this, Allianz has commissioned an extensive survey aimed at shining a light on Ireland’s attitudes towards drink and drug driving. The research, conducted by Red C Research in April 2019, involved 1,007 respondents of different ages and genders, from various regions and social classes throughout Ireland.
