Questions over speed policing in Naul village

Crime rates revealed

A local councillor has questioned gardaí over the policing of speeding in Naul village.

Cllr Adrian Henchy, speaking at a meeting of the Fingal Joint Policing Committee, asked: 'At a recent deputation meeting within Fingal County Council it was reported that there is a serious issue of speeding cars and vehicles both on the approaches to Naul Village and through the Village itself especially near the local primary school where it was stated that Gardaí are unable to carry out random speed checks due to having nowhere safe to set up a speed check can this be confirmed and if it is true what measures need to be taken to allow the Gardaí carry out safe speed checks especially in close proximity to a local primary school?'

In a written response to the councillor's question local gardaí on the JPC reported: 'Garda Carolan, Garristown has been detailed to monitor traffic in the environs of Naul Village. The Roads Policing Unit have been asked to carry out random checks safely on approaches to the village. The Garda Rural Patrol carry out checkpoints and proactive patrols near the village of Naul.'
