Drive took the red light and thought he would make it. People, including a girl with a pram, had to walk around…Rush to refill the taps in the pubs after the weather?

Screeching UPDATE: Driver responds (see comments)



A cracked traffic light on the junction of Blarney Street and Shanakiel Road [Cork] is casting an eerie glow onto the face of Christ on the cross at the adjacent grotto.

Believed to have appeared on the weekend of Corpus Christi, the site has now attracted people to pray there after dark, when the light is most prominent.

‘Local man Terry’ said:

“The light crosses the road, goes up at a 45 degree angle. It starts out as a pin and then it gets bigger like a projector and shines up onto the cross. It picks out only the figure on the cross.”

David Cantwell tweetz:

In Dublin today at the traffic lights…beats unwanted washing of your windscreen.

Healy Rae election stunt?

Carnie folk?


[Mr Justice Anthony Halpin]

[Tallaght District Court] Judge Halpin told Sergeant Bernard Jones: “Maybe we should consider introducing a light between amber and a red. Could you convey this to the authorities. The amber light isn’t working. When people see it, they speed up. We will cut out all traffic accidents.”

Right so.

Motorists head towards the traffic lights at Newlands Cross and the N7 route to Cork and Limerick, as they come off the M50 and the Red Cow Junction, this evening.

Eamon Farrell writes:

Work is to start immediately on a freeflow junction at Newlands Cross. This will means that motorists can drive from Belfast to Cork without encountering any traffic lights. It is the set of lights at Newlands cross which still causes gridlock at the infamous Red Cow Roundabout and traffic trying to access it from the M50.

A brilliant, logical, user-friendly idea. Which we’re never going to see on our roads. Ever.
