« BackKerry among local authorities compliant with new road sign rules

The new signs display diagonal black lines on a white circle. They were introduced to lower speed on rural roads by removing the temptation for drivers to travel at the upper range of the speed limit.

Speed Sign - 80 KMPH

The Department of Transport confirmed that so far, just over half of the 26 local authorities obliged to make the changes have complied.

A spokesman for Kerry County Council said it had informed the Department all relevant signs in Kerry had been replaced prior to the deadline.
