Tipperary councillor fears a child getting knocked down over 'crazy speeding' in estates

Carrick-on-Suir's Cllr David Dunne

A Carrick-on-Suir councillor has called on Tipperary County Council to install speed ramps in housing estates.

“We keep getting an answer of no [from management] about speed ramps in housing estates, but the general public don’t understand the council’s policy, especially families with young children who are looking for their housing estates to be made safer,” Cllr David Dunne told a meeting of the local authority on April 12.
