Why we should listen to Gaybo
GAY Byrne has been an unqualified success as chairman of the Road Safety Authority. He knows his stuff. He speaks firmly and persuasively.
It is good news that he has agreed to take on another stint in the job.
Under his chairmanship, road deaths have fallen sharply. Once we had one of the worst records in this regard in Western Europe; now we have one of the best. Mr Byrne has far too much sense to claim all the credit, but the record means that he can, and does, speak with exceptional authority.
