On this month’s traffic segment, Garda Derek Cloughley was in studio to offer advice to the public in relation to remaining safe on the roads during the holiday period.

Garda Cloughley gave a breakdown of the fatalities on the roads for the first six months of the year. The advice focused on the summer being a high risk period as a result of people travelling in unfamiliar surroundings, an increase in the use of agricultural vehicles and motorcycles on our roads. This coupled with people being generally off their guard while on holiday can result in an increase of collisions during this period.
