Gardaí are calling on people to park legally in designated car parks and spaces when visiting beaches, beauty spots and other public amenities this weekend.
The good weather has seen an increase in dangerous illegal parking at locations across the country in recent weeks.
Gardaí say they want people to enjoy the summer, but do so safely.
A spokesperson said: “Parking illegally can lead to unnecessary risk and dangers such as pedestrians being forced to walk along dangerous roads. It can also prevent emergency services from gaining access to these amenities a seaside locations which could lead to the loss of life.
“We encourage the public to plan their journeys and think safety first when parking your vehicle. The outcome of parking illegally could be far more serious than a FCPN or vehicle towing and puts others and your own life at risk.”
An Garda Siochana reminds and encourages the public to social distance and follow public health guidelines when attending these locations this Summer.
An Garda Siochana is also supporting National Water Safety Awareness Week (June 14th – 20th). Information on this campaign and general water safety can be found on Water Safety Irelands Website – https://watersafety.ie/
