Be AWARE – “National SLOW DOWN Day”, supported by the Road Safety Authority and other stakeholders, will come into effect from 7.00am on March 27th to 7.00am on March 28th next.
An Garda Síochána will now conduct an intensive national speed enforcement operation for this 24 hour period.
The objective of Operation “Slow Down” is to reduce the number of speed related collisions and reduce the number of injuries and related deaths, caused by driving at excessive and inappropriate speeds on our rural roads and motorways.
Last year saw a further increase in road deaths, resulted in 190 fatalities. Excessive and inappropriate speed is the major contributory factor to road traffic collisions, resulting in loss of life. The higher the speed, the greater the likelihood is of a collision taking place. As a general rule a 1% reduction in average speed brings about a 4% reduction in fatal collisions, and this is why reducing motorists’ speed is essential to improving our road safety record.
Invitation to Public and Private Sector Fleet Operators
Public and private sector fleet operators have been invited to participate in this initiative by circulating their employees with one key message, “Slow Down” and whether driving for business or private purposes; always drive within the prescribed speed limit and at a speed appropriate to the weather and other prevailing conditions.
This operation initiative will consist of high visibility speed enforcement activities on both national primary and secondary roads. All speed enforcement technologies will be fully utilised, including all laser hand-held speed detection devices, ROBOT vans and Cleartone/Puma in-car speed detection systems.
You have been warned!
A motor vehicle was in collision with the entrance to the Cathedral of the Assumption this morning, shortly before 11.00a.m. It is understood that the vehicle was crossing this busy stretch of narrow roadway when the driver lost control, colliding with one of this buildings ancient pedestrian gate pillars.
We are happy to report that the driver of the vehicle, who was examined by members of an attending ambulance crew, despite shock, was none the worse for the ordeal and was released from the scene into the care of family members, a short time later.
Work has now commenced to stabilise the gate pillar together with its attached railings. Thurles Gardaí and Fire Officers remain at the scene to ensure the area is rendered safe to the public.
Traffic and pedestrians in this area are being asked to show due care and attention when traversing the Cathedral Street area of Thurles.
Meet Rascal the missing Terrier.
A female pet terrier has gone missing from Ballycurrane, Thurles, since Saturday last.
(Click on image left for larger picture).
Perhaps you can assist the owner in locating her whereabouts. The terrier in question answers to the name Rascal.
Rascal is very much an in-door animal, just 18 months old, very playful and extremely cute. She is also neutered and micro chipped.
Rascal unfortunately was not wearing her collar when she went missing on Saturday, as she had just had a bath.
Rascal is a much loved family pet and leaves another sister terrier pining in her absence. Rascal is understandably also much missed by her owners, who just want her home where she belongs.
A reward has been offered, so do please keep your eyes peeled and if you have information regardless as to her whereabouts, do telephone Tammy at 087 091 8319.
