Traffic

On this month’s programme the Crimecall team went on patrol with Superintendent Edward Golden to demonstrate the importance of drivers observing the rules of the road specific to motorway driving.

Superintendent Golden highlighted the correct use of the various lanes and offences that can be committed by stopping on the hard shoulder.

The advice includes the correct lane discipline in relation to lane two and three and that these are overtaking lanes, with drivers returning to lane one.

Superintendent Golden offered advice on the correct use of the hard shoulder when stopping is unavoidable due to breakdown. The public were advised on the correct procedure to follow in terms of getting out of their car and positioning themselves behind a collision barrier or on high ground.

Finally, the public were advised on how to respond when sharing the road with emergency vehicles.
