Non-stop on the motorway


Sir, – How impressive that we can now drive from Belfast to Cork without having to stop at a single traffic light (Home News, May 1st). How much more impressive if we were allowed to stop at some class of a facility between Dublin and Cork, a distance of 250km. This is a especially important for older people or those with children. Currently there are two or three lay-bys in each direction with not a single litter bin between them. Time for the Government to come into the 20th century. I know this is the 21st, but let’s not be over-ambitious. – Yours, etc,


Offington Drive, Dublin 13.
