Locks For The Locked



On the spot fines for cyclists, alcohol locks and rehabilitation courses for those with poor driving skills are among the key recommendations of a new Road Safety Strategy being launched this morning.

The strategy also proposes a “handbrake lock” for the mobile phones of professional drivers, in-vehicle devices which will detect driver fatigue and the extension of the safety camera network to encompass other offences than speeding.

The new strategy which will run until 2020 aims to further advance Ireland’s position among the safest countries for driving in Europe by reducing overall road deaths to 124 or less per year, down from 182 in 2012.

Pedestrian win.
