    Descriptive info: Local Driving Tips: Maynooth Roost Junction on the Kilcock Road.. 17.. April.. 2012.. Local Driving Tips: Maynooth Roost Junction on the Kilcock Road.. Local Driving Tips: Junction in Maynooth at Garda Station on the Kilcock Road.. As this junction is controlled by traffic light right of way generally isn’t an issue however it can become quite tricky at times especially during rush hour traffic and when schools finish.. Things you need to watch out for if you are coming from the Maynooth Square direction are:.. Make sure you get into your correct lane position in good time.. If you are going straight towards the Castle or turning left going up towards the Train Station then approach in the left lane.. If you are following the road round heading towards Kilcock direction make sure you don’t turn into the filter lane too early or you risk the possibility of a collision with oncoming traffic.. Don’t worry if the lights are still red for turning right and you are blocking up traffic behind wanting to go on straight, there is nothing you can do except wait for your green filter arrow.. If you are the first car in the queue at the red lights and they turn green please make sure there are no pedestrians still looking to cross late, if the pedestrian has already started to cross the road then yield to them, remember a green light means “proceed with caution”.. If you are the first car in the queue and turning left at the red lights, when they turn green please make sure you have a quick glance over your left shoulder and left wing mirror to ensure a cyclist hasn’t slipped up on the inside.. If you are turning right towards Kilcock direction remember the yellow box rule i.. e.. you can only enter a yellow box if you can clear it without stopping.. The one exception is that you can stop in it if you turning right and your exit is clear.. Please don’t enter the yellow box if traffic is backed up ahead of you going to Kilcock.. You run the risk of the traffic lights changing colour and you blocking up the junction.. Things you need to watch out for if you are coming from the Kilcock Road direction are:.. If you following the road round to the left heading into main street then stay in the left lane and watch for the green filter arrow to allow you to proceed.. If you are going straight towards the Train Station  ...   and right as you proceed on the green light.. Again be wary of pedestrians crossing ahead.. Pedestrians are unpredictable, as drivers we were once pedestrians too!!.. If turning right heading up towards the Square, proceed with caution on the green light.. Be particularly cautious to ensure traffic coming from the Square direction and Kilcock direction has come to a full stop; sometimes you can get people trying to “beat the orange lights”.. Also as before be wary of pedestrians because again you will be driving across a pedestrian crossing.. Things you need to watch out for if you are coming from the Castle direction are:.. Get your correct lane position early, if going left you are in the left filter lane, if going straight towards the Square or turning right towards the Train Station you are in the right hand lane.. If you are turning left and the light is green is on, after checking to see that there are no pedestrians still crossing and checking your left hand side blind spot for cyclists you can proceed with caution.. If turning right towards the Train Station and the light is green you do have right of way over traffic coming from other directions.. Please ensure junction is clear of pedestrians before.. Now the tricky one.. If you are going straight and the light is green remember the yellow box rule i.. Please don’t enter the yellow box if traffic is backed up ahead of you going towards the Square direction.. This last case is something we see regularly and is caused by the traffic being backed up due the red traffic lights at the Square.. Be patient and the traffic will move..

    Descriptive info: Local Driving Tips: Liffey Bridge in Celbridge.. 15.. 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 coming from the Newcastle road into Celbridge.. Traffic coming from Celbridge Town..

Other tips:.. Approach the junction cautiously in a low gear that matches your speed, more than likely second gear or first gear.. Do not assume just because you have right of way that other drivers will obey the rules of the road!!!!! Proceed with caution.. If you stop on the hill in traffic, apply your handbrake and change into first gear.. To ensure you don't roll back make sure you find th ebite point before releasing your handbrake.. Categories:..

    Descriptive info: Continue Reading.. |.. Leave Comment.. 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 to the recommended pressure.. Under inflation can increase fuel consumption as well affecting the vehicles handling.. Before your journey, clear unused clutter from the car thereby reducing excess weight and remove roof racks or bicycle racks when not being used.. Don’t start your engine till you are ready to leave and, avoid over revving and try to pull away smoothly.. Do not 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  ...   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 get a good view of the road ahead, but without tailgating.. Remember the 2 second rule throughout your manoeuvre!.. You need to be aware of the speed limit for the road you’re travelling on, the speed of the slower vehicle ahead and also your 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.. 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.. [.. 1.. ].. 2..

    Descriptive info: Welcome on my Blog site.. Please leave comments and suggestions if you wish.. 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 attention, driving without a seatbelt or driving while holding a mobile telephone.. If you are convicted of a motoring offence 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  ...   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?.. 3..
