    Today in Tallaght at 12.48 Luas gets the Light to move and a car decided to fly thought the red light.

    The woman driving blames the junction.:rolleyes:

    People that do not know what a red light means should not be on the road.

    This is happing way too often the Luas driver was pretty shook up.

    i think we should have cameras that issue a fixed penalty at each luas crossing.

    the only way to address the reckless behavior is to make people believe they will be caught. Technology is there, and if new legislation needs to be brought forward it should.

    Every day on every junction this happens (cars running the red). Its not just one bad apple.

    The women driving blames the junction.:rolleyes:


    There's the problem - if a single woman was driving, all would have been well!

    Seriously, I hope she gets penalty points and has to pay for repairs to both her car and the LUAS.

    I said to the woman you just went through a read light and she replied to me she was in shock.

    Just imagine the shock if that had of been a child crossing instead of a tram.
    Stupid cow.

    I'm familiar with that junction. I'm struggling to envisage how the car ended up in that position. Where was she coming from, OP? Must have taken a fair auld thump.

    Hopefully a lesson learned, at least.
