    Descriptive info: General.. Local Driving Tips: Liffey Bridge in Celbridge.. 15.. April.. 2012.. As a learner driver the Liffey Valley Bridge in Celbridge is one of the more intimidating road scenarios, especially during rush hour traffic.. Here is some advice on dealing with this tricky situation.. You must know who has right of way!.. Traffic coming from Lucan Road.. Traffic coming from the Lucan road has right of way over traffic turning right to go onto the Newcastle road from Celbridge town.. Traffic coming from the Lucan road has right of way over traffic turning left from the Ardclough road into Celbridge town or going straight onto Lucan Road.. Traffic coming from the Lucan road has right of way over traffic coming from the Newcastle road into Celbridge.. Traffic coming from Celbridge Town.. Traffic coming from Celbridge town (St Raphael’s side) road going towards the Lucan road has right of way over all other traffic.. Traffic coming from Celbridge town turning left to cross the bridge must yield right of way to traffic coming from the St Raphael’s road direction.. Traffic coming from Celbridge town going straight towards St Raphael’s road must yield right of way to traffic coming from the St Raphael’s road direction and also traffic  ...   turning left) and coming from Celbridge town (if going straight).. Other tips:.. Approach the junction cautiously in a low gear that matches your speed, more than likely second gear or first gear..

    Descriptive info: Eco Driving: Down to the last drop.. 25.. March.. Eco Driving: Down to the last drop.. With the cost of fuel spiralling towards the unthinkable €2 per litre mark (at the time of writing 1 litre of petrol is €1.. 63 and diesel at €1.. 54 per litre) it’s good to know that we can reduce our fuel bills by up to 20% using Eco-Driving techniques.. Eco driving is a style of driving that contributes to road safety while also reducing fuel consumption.. Improvements can be made with a simple change in attitude to driving.. By planning ahead you can be more prepared for potential hazards and slow your vehicle using engine braking (by easing off the accelerator) therefore avoiding the need for harsh or late braking, both of which lead to higher fuel consumption.. To ensure a better performance from your vehicle, make sure it is serviced regularly.. This will improve the vehicle economy and indeed reliability.. You should check your tyre conditions weekly ensuring there is no wear and tear and also ensure they are inflated  ...   leave your engine running unnecessarily, if you are going to be stationary for a few minutes you should switch off your engine till ready to move again.. Once driving you should choose your speed wisely, you can save money by lowering your speed, vehicles travelling at 80kmh use up to 30% more fuel to cover the same distance travelling at 60kmh.. Make sure not to travel so slowly that you are inconveniencing other road users! Use you accelerator smoothly, avoid rapid acceleration where possible and use engine braking or “accelerator sense” when slowing down.. Driving smoothly can reduce fuel consumption by up to 15%.. It also pays to only use air conditioning when necessary and keep windows closed when driving at higher speeds to reduce drag.. Effective route planning can help you to avoid busy times of the day and traffic hot spots therefore reducing time spent stopped or in lower more uneconomical gears.. When put together some of the eco driving techniques mentioned can add up to a considerable amount of money saved through improved fuel economy..

    Descriptive info: Overtaking.. 14.. Overtaking.. Overtaking is probably one of the most dangerous manoeuvres a driver can undertake.. Note.. : Before overtaking you should always make sure.. “it is safe, legal and necessary”.. How many times have you seen someone overtake you in a dangerous manner and five minutes later you see that same vehicle stopped ahead of you at traffic lights!.. Here is the preferred method to overtake safely:.. Before overtaking, make sure the road ahead of the vehicle you are going to overtake is clear and that you are not been overtaken yourself (middle and right mirror check).. Assess the speed and position of the vehicles in front and behind.. Your road position needs to be near enough to the slower vehicle in front, to  ...   own speed to ensure you can overtake safely and return to your left lane without cutting in.. Ensure the gear selected in powerful enough for acceleration required to overtake.. If all is ok make your final MSM check i.. e.. Mirrors / Signal / Manoeuvre.. Mirrors.. : Check middle and right mirror to ensure its safe to overtake.. Signal.. : Indicate right if safe to do so.. Manoeuvre.. : After a final safety glance out the driver window (not the blind spot) move out in a smooth line leaving adequate room as you pass.. Check your mirrors (middle and left) to ensure you’ve cleared the vehicle you’ve overtaken before moving smoothly back into your left lane.. Any questions or thoughts please don’t hesitate to comment..

    Descriptive info: 27.. February.. How's my driving?.. Rewarding safer drivers.. How is my driving?.. Recently there has been extra “driving offences” added to the penalty point’s scheme for dangerous drivers.. And rightly so.. However isn’t it time to put a scheme together that rewards good law abiding drivers?.. For example, you’ll often see the “How’s my driving?” sign on a truck or van, with the idea being to phone the number on the sign to let the participating company know if you had a complaint to make about the driver.. If the call is a complaint the driver can be reprimanded.. However if the call is praise (which I’m sure it rarely is) the driver is issued some sort of reward, whether it’s a safety certificate or safety bonus in their wage packet.. These are the companies who consistently report a reduction in fuel consumption and lost hours due to accidents.. People perform better when they are praised.. It’s in the company’s interest to promote safer driving especially when the company name is on the vehicle as it can sometimes be the difference between clinching a contract and losing a contract.. How can we apply a similar reward scheme for private car and motorcycle drivers? For example, how about we reward those that drive within the speed limit.. A safety camera is set up within a speed limit and it records the speed of every driver passing through it over a period of one day.. Those who exceed the speed limit are fined with this money then going into a pot.. All those drivers who remained within the speed limit then enter the draw to see who wins the money from the fines in the pot.. It would be a nice change to promote safer driving than threatening people with penalty points, endorsements and fines.. Anyone else got any ideas?..  ...   vision and you can see the road ahead clearly.. If the seat cannot be adjusted, use a pillow or other support for proper positioning.. Keep all mirrors, headlights and taillights clean and in good repair.. Remember to wash both the inside and outside of wind screen and windows regularly.. Try and avoid driving at night or in bad weather if you have difficulty seeing in low-light situations.. Never wear sunglasses or deeply tinted glasses for driving at night or at dusk.. 09.. Beware Rogue Instructors!.. In 2009 Driving Instruction in Ireland became regulated whereby all driving instructors had to sit and pass three exam’s to qualify for the RSA’s registrar for Approved Driving Instructors (ADI).. Unless you are on this register and hold a permit from the RSA,.. it is an offence to give driving lessons for reward.. Three years later, 2012, and there are still some “rogue instructors” plying their trade illegally.. These instructors have not sat their RSA exams and more than likely the reason why is that they would not reach the high standard required to pass.. Please ensure when you are getting your driving lesson’s that you see your instructors ADI permit which should be on display in the vehicle (similar to how taxi’s are required to display their permits).. If they do not have a permit the driving lesson is invalid when completing your.. mandatory 12 lessons (EDT).. Very often these un-regulated rogue instructors are offering poor standards of driving lessons at very low prices.. Remember the adage “If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.. ” Pass it up, or at least check it out with a call to the RSA by phoning 1890 50 60 80 or email..

    Descriptive info: Refresher Driving Lessons.. 03.. Refresher Driving Lessons.. The R.. has recently encouraged fully licensed drivers who are unsure about roundabouts and motorway driving to seek out a driving instructor for some.. refresher driving lessons.. I believe this is certainly a good idea for those who feel they may need it and one or two hour’s tuition should be adequate for most people.. The idea of refresher driving lessons is not a new one.. In Ireland motoring offences occur regularly, whether its drink driving, speeding, driving without evidence of insurance or motor tax, driving without due care and  ...   you can be disqualified from driving (a minimum of three years) or have an endorsement imposed on your driving licence.. If you receive 12 penalty points on your driving lesson this will result in a six month driving ban.. Going forward it is only a matter of time before people who have been disqualified from driving will need to re-sit their driving test before their driving licence is returned.. Personally I think this makes perfect common sense.. We need to improve the technique and attitude of drivers today and refresher lessons might go some way to helping this..
