DOZENS of rural roads across Co Donegal will have speed limits reduced – with many currently at 100km/hr being reduced to just 60km/hr.
The move follows a report today in the Irish Independent that the government is determined to reduce the carnage on our roads even further.
Some speed limits will increase however under the proposals.
An NRA audit hopes to address:
– Speed limits such as 80kmh on boreens with grass growing up the middle.
– Speed limits that are too slow, such as 60kmh on a straight stretch of dual carriageway with two miles of clear visibility ahead.
– The wrong speed limit in the wrong place, such as an 80kmh sign at a dangerous corner on a country road.
– Stretches of road that don’t have enough signs, leading to confusion among motorists about the speed they should be travelling at.
– Areas where there are too many speed signs, leading to confusion about the true speed limit.
