See the cones obey the zones 09.04.19

EVERY year there are hundreds of incidents at road works sites that put road workers lives at risk and local authorities from around Ireland including Donegal County Council have joined forces to highlight the dangers that exist on a daily basis at road works sites.
 A line of cones won’t stop a speeding car but you can - see the cones obey the zones.
“Road works are a place of work for thousands of people and these workers have a right to expect a safe working environment” says Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer with Donegal County Council.
“For this reason the message is simple - a line of cones won’t stop a speeding car but you can. We know drivers want to get home but so do our workers - see the cones obey the zones.”
Brian added “we are urging drivers to slow down and obey set speed limits at road works. Motorists who don’t obey these speed limits are putting not only their own lives at risk but also the lives of road workers and other road users. We are asking motorists to follow the temporary road signage on display, stay alert for road workers and machinery and keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front and not to break the red light or ignore the flagmans stop sign.”
Donegal County Council is part of a national campaign being led by Local Authority Road Safety Officers from all over Ireland known as “Orange Cone Safety Zone Week”.
