At the Round­wood & Dis­trict Com­mu­nity Coun­cil meet­ing last night the Gar­daí out­lined a num­ber of in­ci­dents and se­ri­ous com­plaints re­ceived due to park­ing on the foot­path op­po­site the shops on the Main Street. The sit­u­a­tion is now so se­ri­ous that some­one will be crit­i­cally in­jured or killed. From now on il­le­gal park­ing will not be tol­er­ated and our lo­cal Gar­daí will be en­forc­ing this rigidly.

Another is­sue raised is speed­ing through the vil­lage. Wick­low Co Coun­cil staff work­ing with our lo­cal Coun­cil­lors and the Com­mu­nity Coun­cil will be mak­ing a sub­mis­sion to the Na­tional Trans­port Au­thor­ity seek­ing fund­ing for fur­ther traf­fic calm­ing mea­sures in the vil­lage. The Gar­daí are well aware of the is­sue and are tak­ing the nec­es­sary ac­tion to dis­cour­age speed­ing by de­ploy­ing the GATSO van and reg­u­lar speed checks in the com­ing months. Please heed th­ese warn­ing. This ac­tion is be­ing taken for your safety and that of our chil­dren.
