Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport Leo Varadkar has urged motorists to drive safely over the bank holiday weekend, following four road deaths in the last 24 hours.
“This bank holiday weekend has already seen four people killed on the roads. Heavy rainfall is being predicted for many parts of the country, so conditions on the roads are likely to be hazardous in some areas.
“Bank holidays are meant to be a time of fun and relaxation. However, these weekends are generally more dangerous for motorists, and see higher traffic levels. I would appeal to motorists everywhere to slow down, never drink and drive, and ensure that no more lives are lost on the road this weekend.”
