      Safety Concerns
      It has been our experience in previous elections that numerous complaints have been received from motorists and pedestrians in relation to safety issues associated with election posters. Our own staff have also raised a number of concerns. The main issues relate to the following:

      Posters that are obscuring the visibility of traffic/pedestrian signals and traffic signs. Many of the problems are caused by posters that are erected on poles adjacent to signals or signs
      Posters that are below head height or resting on the ground. These posters can cause obstructions on footpaths and are particularly hazardous to the visually impaired
      Protruding cable ties that are at a level that could cause injury to pedestrians, particularly children
      Where Dublin City Council staff become aware of posters that are considered to be causing a hazard they will be removed and disposed.

      Please note that our Customer Services Centre will handle complaints of any posters that are deemed to be causing a hazard to motorists or pedestrians and they are contactable on telephone number: 2221000 or email customerservices@dublincity.ie

      The following guidelines may be helpful in ensuring that posters are not a hazard to the public:

      Posters should be erected at a minimum height of 2.3 metres above footpaths, cycle tracks or any area to which pedestrians have access
      Posters should not be erected on lamp standards with overhead line electricity feed, traffic signal poles, bridge parapets, overpasses, pedestrian bridges, or roadside traffic barriers
      Posters should not obscure statutory road signs or traffic/pedestrian signals in any way
      Posters should be securely fixed to poles with cable ties or similar material to facilitate removal without damage to the poles
