Traffic holdup

    Big traffic holdup on M7 yesterday Tuesday between J 14 and J15. Hopefully nobody seriously hurt. Visibility poor due to persistent rain and very wet body any idea as to cause of holdup. One thing I noticed was an ambulance trying to make its way from the south to the site and it did not have a clear run because on body knew wheather to keep right or left. I suggest that where there is such a holdup and there is no service area being kept clear , at all times for service vehicles that there is a space kept free on the right side of the motorway. The ambulance , in this case, was trying to weave its way in the middle of the motorway

    If you have Twitter on your phone, create a list called 'Traffic'. As a minmum, add @TIITraffic and @LiveDrive to it. Then, if you're involved in a holdup, bring up that list and you'll find out what's causing it.

    Others you may consider adding ....

    You'll be for the high jump if any of the cycling Gestapo spot you using Twitter while driving.

    Clown with an immediate attempt at a derail. Doubt you'll see any cyclist on the M7. If you read the post you'd know all traffic was at a standstill too.

    Posting after 19 days of nothing is hardly an immediate attempt at a derail 🤡

    Some of the suggested Twitter feeds are nothing to do with motorways 🤡

    Coylemj's post doesn't mention the M7 🤡

    Anyways the law doesn't differentiate between traffic at a standstill or slow moving, or what type of road you are on, none would be legal to drive on while you access Twitter on your mobile. 🤡

    Who's the 🤡 now!

    Still you for letting the imaginary cyclist boogyman be your go to response off the bat 19 days later despite nobody asking. Rent free in your head and all that.

    There's no shortage of threads that were hijacked by cyclists.

    And you're still the bigger 🤡 for assuming my reply was to the OP rather than coylemj.

    Spook_ie still living rentfree in your head 😂

    Pots and black kettles , from the lads obsessed with cyclists and cycling.

    Did a cyclist cycle off with your missus or what?

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,149 ✭✭✭SeanW

    No, but they seem to like bulldozing me out of their way on the footpath when I'm walking, while complaining that others aren't regulated enough.

    Sorry to hear about your experiences with drivers.

    Was talking about cyclists. You'd asked about them, remember?

    Lads this thread has nothing to do with cyclists!

    Some of you are far off topic and frankly on the edge of trolling.

    MOD: Back on topic, the next person who mentions cyclists gets banned.
