TAKING care on the roads is so important and that’s why the gardai have released a list of locations they’ll be targeting in a bid to encourage drivers to stay under the limit and drive safely.
National Slow Down Day will see a large garda presence on the roads and in Clare, the N68 Knockalough Kilmihil has been included on the list of locations nationwide that will be targeted.
Storm Brian is in our midst and with it Status Orange weather warnings, so that’s going to make the roads even more treacherous.
Chief Superintendent Finbarr Murphy of the Roads Policing Bureau said: “We appeal to drivers to work with us and play their part in reducing injury and tragedy on the road, by supporting our National Slow Down Day.
“Please stick strictly to the posted speed limit, but if the road, traffic or especially weather conditions dictate… reduce your speed even further.
“This will make the journey safer not only for you, but for every road user sharing the road with you.”
