These checkpoints are about as useful as an ash tray on a Honda 50, tailbacks on the motorways all day, nothing but an inconvenience to workers,literally just standing there waving everyone through, but sure it’s for the greater good 😬#OperationFanacht pic.twitter.com/IO5JeuZ0mZ

An Garda Síochána’s surreal Operation Fanacht ends its first day.
The highways are little safer.
Earlier: Comply or The PUP Gets It
Officers who spoke to The Irish Times were unapologetic about the long traffic jams caused in some parts of the country, saying Garda Commissioner Drew Harris had on Tuesday warned very clearly that delays were inevitable.
More than 130 static checkpoints erected on motorways and other arterial routes yesterday morning around the country were switched to the opposite side of the road later in the day.
It meant motorists delayed in the morning faced the same disruption in the evening; a strategy that was set to continue for the next three weeks.
Cruel and futile.
That’ll learn the rona.
