Stanley wants Batman road sign

Put up collapsible road signs like the type seen in Batman films, was the colourful suggestion made by Brian Stanley TD at County Hall this week.

Speaking about a sign on the western link road which he claimed is knocked down every week, Deputy Stanley said: “We should be looking for signs like you see in the Batman films, that you can drive over and they come back up again.”

Deputy Stanley was speaking at the Laois County Joint Policing Committee meeting, where he highlighted the dangers of a stretch of road in Kilmullen which has been the scene of numerous traffic accidents.

“There was another accident the other day, there’s a huge problem there, whether it’s people driving in excess of the speed limit, or is it mobile phone use?” he asked.
