Wexford road sign sending out the wrong message
last Thursday was 'European Day Without A Road Death,' but it would seem someone got their wires crossed, sending out the macabre message with the 'out' missing from Without.
The digital message was out up on all the signboards in Leinster, with this particular example on the N25 ring road around Wexford,
Cllr George Lawlor said he was alerted to the issue by a constituent.
'I immediately contacted David Codd Road Safety Officer Wexford County Council who contacted TII (Transport Infrascture Irleand) which operates the signboards and they were sorted,' he said.
The European Day Without A Road Death (EDWARD) initiative, backed by the European Commission and the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL), aims to reduce the death toll on Europe's roads.
