    Ok… What is the deal with thetraffic lights in Drogheda lately?

    Several times over the Christmas and this entire weekend the main traffic lights at 3 major junctions in Drogheda were out… At Scotch Hall/Quays, and the 2 main Junctions on the Dublin Road

    SO Dangerous!!!!!

    I was dumb-founded that no traffic warden was assigned to assist with heavy weekend traffic – Saturday was dreadful!

    :shock:

    Jene its an absolute disgrace. People are just guessing that someone else is giving them the right of way. All it will take is one lula to come flying throught and cause an accident and then the tears will start. If the lights are out the traffic wardens should be there. I will stop at the cause if i keep going I wont stop.

    traffic wardens 😆 😆 😆 😆
    They only give parking tickets, its the Garda who should be there. The traffic on the right have the right of way, it reverts to the flow of a roundabout type free flow.
    I did hear that the time over christmas the light were out, due to a wide load passing through Drogheda, dont know if it was coming off the boats or what

    Lights are a disgrace! We came through on Sat or was it Sun and they were out but the Guards were there. Another time thye were out we saw a car come flying through and crunch into another. I almost wet myself I was so scared!

    oh yeah! 😆

    I know the traffic to the right has right of way…but no one seems to be minding this at all and you could be stuck there all day waiting for a polite driver!

    It really is a disgrace and I am dumbfounded that a large town like drogheda wouldn’t emply the garda to assist in this

    I know your right, but its a case of being assertive and cautious at the same time IYKWIM

    Cant see why they didnt have an engineer on call to flick the switch to turn the lights back on! Im sure they could bill the company who were moving the wideload….
