Irish Road Safety

If there is anything we learned in Ireland it’s that the speed limit is outrageous and the locals only consider it a suggestion. There are signs everywhere telling people to slow down and how 495 people died last year from speeding on that road, or whatever. Seriously, I thought NYC was scary but that was nothing.

One of the few days we watched an television there was an ad we saw, which seems to me a lot more aggressive than anything you’d see in America. What I don’t understand is, if you want to change things why no lower the speed limit and have more Guarda on the roads. Just a suggestion.

    That is some messed up commercial! I find it interesting how other countries deal (or dont) with things like this…esp when it’s so easy to fix.
