Gardai has called on Irish drivers to take care while on the roads.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, a representative revealed that more motorcyclists have lost their lives so far this year, in comparison to the whole of 2012.

Chief Superintendent Michael O'Sullivan told the news provider: “There is no doubt that excessive or inappropriate speed plays a significant factor in collisions, and in particular what happens to those involved."

Mr O’Sullivan explained that four out of five fatal road traffic collisions are happening on roads with a speed limit of 80km/h (50mph) or more.

He warned that reducing speeds and ensuring all passengers wear a seatbelt could make the difference between life and death.

While travelling on the roads, drivers should also guarantee that they look out for warning signs, which will notify them of any major changes to routes that could impact their journeys.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801624360-ADNFCR
