COUNCILLOR DEMANDS PROPER SAFETY MEASURES FOR ALL DONEGAL SCHOOLS

first_imgCllr Patrick McGowanCllr Patrick McGowan has called for school and parents associations all over Donegal to write to the Dept of of transport, the Dept of Education and the Road Safety Authority to demand proper safety measures at all schools.He said all the safety measures implemented over recent years have been inconsistent and differ from one school to the next .“Schools on local roads and national primary roads are all treated differently with NP schools attracting large NRA funding in some cases while schools on local roads are left to local fund raising or local authorities to scrape up funding for sigage . “The types of signage and advance warning lights just add to confusion and are treated with complacency by most drivers wither parents dropping off or passing traffic .“The only safe consistent and affordable plan would be to have one national law governing outside all schools which can easily be monitored and enforced quite easily by the relavant authorities and will be common to everyone everywhere.”Cllr McGowan said he has received support in the past from senior engineers in Donegal County Council and national road safety officers but the transport depth and NRA have not agreed to give this plan serious consideration, instead chosen to continue to administrate over an inconsistent safety poliy which at best makes a lottery out of which parent and child has a safe environment in and around their school.“Taking this campaign onto the national stage will I believe put on the necessary pressure to have acceptial plan in place,” said Cllr McGowan.
