New Ireland Motors wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! We hope drivers are extra safe on the roads and avoid any crash repairs over the festive season.
Roads become more dangerous during the winter period due to rain and snow. The icy ground causes huge amount of accidents on back roads and main roads. Leading to high volume of crash repairs. Please prepare yourself and be cautious during turns and on roundabouts.
Even Santa’s sleigh has gotten a full service here at New Ireland Motors to prepare for any storm coming his way.
Dublin has one of the highest number of car collisions due to it’s high population but there are a high number of ‘Black Spot’ areas in other counties. A Black Spot is an area the Garda have listed as a speed enforcement zone.
These roads are highlighted as there have been a high number of road accidents here. When roads are wet or icy, the chances of a collision are greater. There is one section of road with a particularly high casualty rate. It is a stretch of single carriageway between Arklow and Rathnew. It has claimed 33 lives over 25 years, making it one of the worst black spots in the country. We advise all customers to take precautions if using this road.
We advise drivers to watch out for pedestrians and cyclist as they can not always be seen between the window wipers.
