A crackdown on speeding tractors is in the pipeline for the Inishowen peninsula.
The issue was raised by local county councillor Terry Crossan at the latest Joint Police Committee meeting.
Cllr Crossan said there was a worrying rise at this time of year with tractor drivers speeding through villages while using mobile phones.
He described it as a “potential recipe for disaster.”
He pleaded for more Garda checks in villages in a bid to “get the message out.”
Gardai Superintendent Goretti Sheridan said resources had been stretched in recent months because of the policing of the border as a result of Covid.
However, Supt Sheridan said she would take a look at the situation again and allocate resources to the area.
