Celbridge road, Lucan.
My uncle was decapitated there by a speeding driver.

You all keep worrying about your fines though, because that’s what it’s all about.
It’s nothing to do with speed limits being in place for a reason.

You’re all great drivers, and would never break the speed limit. Well, unless the speed limit doesn’t suit you and your needs. Then it’s just an annoyance, right?

Along with my uncle being killed, I’m also missing a parent due to a speeding driver.
It took six weeks for my father to die after being knocked down at a pedestrian crossing, but it must have been his fault. After all, you shouldn’t have to stop for pedestrians.

Yeah. Those damn Gardaí and their speed traps.
How dare they do their jobs by enforcing the law? They really have some cheek.
