In October, there were chaotic delays on the N7 - one of the busiest roads in the country - following a fatal crash which claimed the life of an elderly pedestrian.
Some motorists reported that they ran out of petrol because of the gridlock that virtually shutdown the three-lane road.
There were reports that it took four hours to travel the 10km from Bluebell in Clondalkin to Citywest.
