LAST week we brought in the first system to punish drivers who break red lights with three penalty points and a €120 fine.

As part of a comment piece for the Irish Independent I said I could, off the top of my head, give the minister a list of another dozen junctions in Greater Dublin alone where his potentially life-saving initiative could be repeated to real effect.

Since then I have had numerous emails etc asking me to name them.

Delighted. Here they are. Let me know of those you would name and shame - anywhere in the country.

* White's Cross junction of Leopardstown Road and Bray Road/Stillorgan dual carriageway

* The Dublin Airport roundabout

* Donnybrook Church junction

* Burgh Quay

* Leeson St Bridge

* Capel St junction with the quays

* Howth Road junction with Brookwood Avenue

* Roads leading onto Con Colbert Road.

* Palmerstown

* Outside Lidl in Bray

* Artane Roundabout

* Parnell Street

I could go on. But I'd rather hear from you. ecunningham@independent.ie
