My first reaction to the news that we're using technology to stop people breaking red lights - albeit in one area for now - was to ask why it has taken so long.

That is not by any means to criticise the endeavour but to underline the prevalence of running-the-red-lights madness we see every day we take to our roads.

I could give the minister a list of at least another dozen junctions in the greater Dublin area alone where his potentially life-saving initiative could be repeated to great effect.
