John Dillon fined for flashing signs

A former IFA president has been fined after improperly using flashing electronic signs to promote himself in the general election, which could act as a warning for companies to ensure that their safety signage is not dangerously bright.

The signs were used to show the messages "Dillon Delivers" and "Vote Number 1 Dillon" and have led to Mr Dillon being faced with fines and costs totalling €2,500 (£2,178), reports Independent.Ie.

Mr Dillon has said that he would contemplate appealing the decision after consulting his legal adviser.

The court was told that warning letters had been sent to the ex-IFA president, which warned him to remove the signs within 24 hours, yet they remained.

Businesses can learn how to efficiently use safety signs in their workplace as part of this year's White Van Roadshow, which will visit colleges and construction sites in the north-west of England.

The tour hopes to educate companies on how they can prevent accidents.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800544643-ADNFCR
