Gardai have issued a warning to motorists this morning that traffic could well be at a standstill due to children back and school and most people back to work.
The inclement weather of late means low-lying water will remain on roads until at least the weekend. More rain means people need to drive slower and the message is clear.
Garda Vincent Thompson said:
“People need to slow down and leave extra early. School buses will be back on the roads along with people being back to work. The bad weather means people will be driving slower than usual. Motorists are advised to take extra care this morning and for the week ahead.”
