Leinster House, Dublin 2
Limerick TD Richard O’Donoghue drove a truck to Leinster House today as part of a protest against rising fuel prices.
Name that vehicle, anyone?
Dublin Hill, Cork.
More as we get it.
Consistent issue of RTC’s for Luas red line. It’s effectively running the gauntlet between Heuston and Connolly in particular. The current junction layouts are not safe enough. No doubt buildings obscure sight lines. Need to look at speed limits and limiting traffic in general. https://t.co/vWiUooeRxU

Earlier this morning.
At the intersection of Benburb Street and Queen Street near McGettigan’s Bar in Smithfield, Dublin 7.
A crash took place between a Luas tram and a truck.
The Dublin Fire Brigade have reported that one person has suffered non-life threading injuries.

The pub craze.
Sweeping the capital.
A number of pubs have opted to have food trucks and pop-ups operating in the pub or out in the back garden areas to provide food, sometimes on a rotating basis to keep punters well fed.
This provides a lot of variety for the customer and an added selling point for the pub.
It’s worth noting that all of the pop-ups on this list (see link below) have veggie options or are based around a veggie offering. Several of them have good vegan offerings too.
Behold: the Scania AXL – the Swedish manufacturer’s concept for an autonomous dump truck.
An actual prototype rather than a render, the AXL’s cabless chassis is driven by a biodiesel engine, using seven cameras, multiple radars, and a laser to navigate its environment.
Quarrries and gravel pits – being remote and largely free of pesky humans – might well be the first place autonomous vehicles start full time work.
Behold: the Ford F-Vision concept – a prototype take on the future of electric semi-trucks unveiled at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Germany this month.
In ‘self-drive’ mode, the wraparound windscreen blends back into the streamlined bodywork – a feature, claims Ford, inspired by the ‘adaptive abilities of Marvel superheroes’, thereby earning itself an atomic wedgie.

#8thref metaphor on the North Quays. A crass fundamentalist theocratic hot mess gets towed away. Displays of lies, dishonesty & policies rooted in mysogyny have no place on our streets or on bodies. Get as many out and vote #Together4Yes and let’s tow in a new future.
The driver of a truck on a South Korean highway loses, then regains control.
Like a boss.
