Tipperary County Council, in conjunction with its partners, the Road Safety Authority (RSA), Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), An Garda Síochána (AGS), Tipperary Fire and Rescue Service and the HSE/National Ambulance Service has launched a strategy for road safety in Tipperary.
This is the first all-county Road Safety Strategy for Tipperary and covers the period 2018-2020. It is based on the Government Road Safety Strategy 2013-2020 and sets the ambitious target of reducing fatalities and serious injuries to 4 and 10 respectively per year in County Tipperary by 2020. This will require a reduction of 69% on the 2016 figures and requires a co-ordinated approach to road safety promotion.
The Mission Statement contained in the strategy is to create a greater awareness of road safety through all our stakeholders with the aim of reducing the number, severity and life-changing impact of road collisions, thereby making County Tipperary a safer place for all road users.
The Strategy will examine specific local issues relevant to Tipperary. It offers a strategic direction for road safety in Tipperary in terms of Education, Engineering, Enforcement and Evaluation. This requires a co-ordinated approach between all the stakeholders to provide a focus on collision and casualty reduction in the county and to try to improve overall safety levels within our communities.
It is the sincere hope of all the stakeholders that the continued focus on Road Safety in County Tipperary as part of this Road Safety Strategy will contribute further to collision and casualty reduction in the County over the lifetime of the Strategy.
The Strategy also encourages all members of the community to play an active part in reducing fatalities and injuries on Tipperary’s roads by taking responsibility for their own behaviour as road users.
In launching the strategy, Councillor Phyll Bugler, Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council states:
“Road safety is a shared responsibility and there is a developing culture of road safety amongst road users. Critical to success will be the level of interaction with all road users, so as to continue the marked change in personal behaviours and attitudes and bring about further responsible road user behaviours in order to achieve a safer road environment.”

Chief Executive of Tipperary County Council, Mr. Joe MacGrath, states:
“The challenge has been set to raise Ireland’s road safety performance to that of the best performing countries in the world. This joint strategy sets out the collaborative approach to improving road safety and the targeted actions to be delivered throughout County Tipperary. Significant progress can be achieved through a solid strategy of enhanced co-operation on education, engineering, enforcement and evaluation. I would like to acknowledge the work of all the stakeholders in developing this strategy.”
Chief Superintendent Catherine Kehoe, An Garda Siochana, in welcoming the launch of the Road Safety Strategy, stated that “this strategy recognised the need for a shared approach to reducing deaths and serious injury on our roads through collaboration with other key agencies focusing on four elements: Education, Engineering, Enforcement, and Evaluation.”
As a lead agency, An Garda Siochana’s Traffic Mission Statement is to “Develop a National Culture of Safe Road Use”. “This three year strategy aligned to our Divisional Policing Plan sets out our commitment to safe road use in the county.”

Drivers Urged to be aware of cyclists during National Bike Week & to give them the space to ride safe

• National Bike Week runs from Saturday 9 June to Sunday 17 June
• Drivers reminded to give cyclists safe clearance space when overtaking
• Check blind spots for cyclists and use ‘Dutch Reach’ when opening the door
• Cyclists reminded that Rules of the Road apply to them too

Thursday 7 June, 2018 - The Road Safety Authority (RSA), Cyclist.ie the Irish Cycling Advocacy Network, Department of Transport Tourism and Sport, and An Garda Síochána are urging drivers, in the run up to National Bike Week which runs from Saturday 9 June to Sunday 17 June, to be aware of cyclists and to give them the space to ride safe when overtaking. Cyclists are also being reminded to follow the Rules of the Road.

All road users need to be aware there will be an increase in the number of cyclists on the road over this period, drivers in particular are asked to treat them with respect and to share the road safely - not only during the upcoming National Bike Week, but every day of the year.

The organisations have three important pieces of advice for drivers.

• Give cyclists the space to ride safe when overtaking them. (1 metre in speed zones under 80km/h and 1.5 metres in zones over 80km/h). Cyclists can be thrown off course by sudden gusts of wind or when having to avoid uneven road surfaces.
• Check mirrors regularly. Remember a cyclist could be in your blind spot, look carefully before making your manoeuvre.
• If you or passengers are getting out of the vehicle make sure you check for passing cyclists before opening the door.
The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Mr. Shane Ross TD said that “National Bike Week is a great way to get out and about for air and exercise, particularly in the summer sunshine. I would encourage everyone to use the road safely, look out for each other and enjoy the various activities taking place all around the country. Let’s make them memorable events for the right reasons.”

Ms Moyagh Murdock, Chief Executive of the RSA appealed to drivers to be on guard for cyclists using the roads. “You need to allow extra space when overtaking a cyclist and always anticipate a cyclist having to make a sudden move to avoid a pothole or obstruction. It’s also important to watch out for cyclists at junctions especially when turning left and when pulling away from the kerb.”

She added that “Something else we are going to be hearing a lot more about in this country is the ‘Dutch Reach’. It’s the way people in Holland have been taught for years to open the door of a car to avoiding hitting a passing cyclist. Instead of opening the door with the hand closest the door, use the hand that’s furthest away. This forces you to swivel and look in your wing mirror and blind spot before opening the door, allowing you to see if there are any cyclists approaching.”

Mr. Colm Ryder, Chairperson of Cyclist.ie, the Irish Cycling Advocacy Network, said: ‘National Bikeweek is a great celebration of the bicycle and hundreds of events will be taking place around the country. There is an event near you somewhere! So why not leave the car at home if you can this week, and get on your bike? However you are travelling make sure to be safe, drive slowly, and respect other road users at all times”

Assistant Commissioner, David Sheahan, Garda National Roads Policing Unit said, “An Garda Síochána would like to echo what has already been said in that cycling should be a fun and safe pastime but unfortunately mistakes are made which lead to sometimes serious and even fatal injury. While drivers have a duty of care to cyclists and need to follow the rules of the road, equally cyclists need to do the same. This starts with the bike. You need to ensure it is roadworthy and be in good working order to include brakes, tyres, chain, and have lights and have reflectors. You should wear reflective clothing and always wear a helmet when cycling.”

He added that cyclists should “Never cycle more than two abreast and always cycle single-file when overtaking. This is for your safety but also to be considerate to other road users. It’s also important to never take up a position on the ‘inside’ of a large vehicle when they are turning left as you may be in their blind spot.”

National Bike Week is a celebration and promotion of all that is great about bikes and cycling held over a week in June of each year with bike themed events organised by local authorities, community groups and cycling groups throughout Ireland.

Boil Water Notice ~ General Information.

It is especially important that you follow the routine noted below. Thank you.

  • Water must be boiled for:
    • Drinking;
    • Drinks made with water;
    • Preparation of salads and similar foods, which are not cooked prior to eating;
    • Brushing of teeth; and
    • Making of ice.
  • Water can be used for personal hygiene, bathing and flushing of toilets but not for brushing teeth or gargling.
  • Boil water by bringing to a vigorous, rolling boil, (for example, automatic kettle), and allow to cool. Cover and store in a refrigerator or cold place. Water from the hot tap is not safe to drink. Domestic water filters will not render water safe to drink.

  • Caution should be taken when bathing children to ensure that they do not swallow the bathing water.
  • Discard ice cubes in fridges and freezers and filtered water in fridges. Make ice from freshly cooled boiled water.
  • Use water prepared for drinking when preparing foods that will not be cooked, (for example, washing salads).
  • Prepare infant feeds with tap water that has been brought to the boil once and cooled. Do not use water that has been reboiled several times. If bottled water is used for the preparation of infant feeds it should be boiled once and cooled. If you are using bottled water for preparing baby food, be aware that some natural mineral water may have high sodium content. The legal limit for sodium in drinking water is 200 mg per litre. Check the label on the bottled water to make sure the sodium or `Na' is not greater than 200 mg per litre. If it is, then it is advisable to use a different type of bottled water. If no other water is available, then use this water for as short a time as possible. It is important to keep babies hydrated.
  • Anyone suffering from diarrhoea, (for example, 3 or more loose bowel motions in a 24 hour period), for more than two days should contact their General Practitioner and provide a stool sample for testing. They should continue to drink plenty of boiled or bottled water.

Great care should be taken with boiled water to avoid burns and scalds. Accidents can easily happen, especially with children and with persons who have reduced mobility.

Road-wise pedestrians are safe pedestrians. Find out how to put your best foot forward and stay safe on Irish roads.

The Basics

Although you can’t be responsible for the way people drive, you can take a number of steps to make yourself safer as a pedestrian:

• Stop, look and listen
• Don’t try to cross the road between parked cars
• If possible, cross at a pedestrian crossing or traffic lights
• Never cross at a bend
• If there is a footpath, use it
• If there is no footpath, walk/run/jog on the right hand side of the road, facing oncoming traffic and keeping as close as possible to the side of the road
• Walk no more than two abreast and if the road is narrow or there is heavy traffic, walk in single file

Increase your visibility

More than two-thirds of fatal pedestrian collisions happen at night. Although you can hear a car coming and see its lights, the driver may not see you (and certainly won’t hear you).

To protect yourself make sure you:

• Always wear a pair of reflective armbands, high-visibility belt or other reflective or fluorescent clothing which will help you to be seen from a distance
• Carry a torch on country roads

Sobering facts

Drunken pedestrians are a source of danger to themselves and other road users. If you have had one too many, don’t attempt to walk – hail a taxi, use public transport or get a lift from a (non-drinking) friend.
Pubs and clubs also have a responsibility to prevent intoxicated customers walking out on public roads where they could be hit by passing vehicles, or cause a crash through their own behaviour. To prevent this happening, bar staff or anyone serving alcohol should decide if the person is fit to walk. If not, they should arrange to get them home safely.

For this and other road safety information see www.rsa.ie
