Gar­daí amazed at risks driv­ers take in snow

Bray People - - News Focus -

GAR­DAI are ‘ stunned by the an­tics,’ of some driv­ers in ice and snow, re­port­ing speeds of up to 120 km/h on the M50 and N11 over the last num­ber of days.

Garda De­clan Lynch made an ap­peal for peo­ple to slow down in bad weather. ‘ Speed lim­its are ex­actly that. You must drive to the weather con­di­tions,’ he said. ‘You have to be aware of what can hap­pen in a split sec­ond.’

He said that other road users might not be ex­pe­ri­enced. ‘ You need to take the foot off the pedal and drive to the con­di­tions. It’s some­thing only ex­pe­ri­ence can teach you. The con­se­quences of speed­ing are just not worth it.’
