TRAFFIC JAMS are leaving coastal motorists fuming.
Parents of children at Coláiste na hInse and Scoil an Spioraid Naoimh are asking for help with daily traffic jams at the schools.
Labour TD Gerald Nash says he went out one morning to witness the situation at first hand, and it 'is chaotic'.
' This must be resolved before there is an accident,' he told the Drogheda Independent.
'I met with council officials last week and the immediate priority is to complete the footpaths in both directions to Bettystown and Laytown. This will facilitate the reintroduction of the 'walking buses' which were so successful in the past.'
He says the council have applied to the NTA for funding and he will be doing 'all in his power to support that application'.
'In the meantime the council together with the schools are planning to introduce a traffic management plan by using the loop at the end of the road and urging parents not to double park but to drop off their children where it is safe and then move on,' he added.
