Mayo County Council's road safety office has issued an appeal to those contesting the upcoming election, over election posters.

With strong winds forecast over the coming days, the road safety office is urging candidates not to hang banners and posters from road over-bridges and pedestrian bridges, as they could become loose, or be interfered with by third parties, and could fall onto fast-moving traffic.

Road Safety Officer Noel Gibbons also says there's a safety issue connected to the erection and removal of posters, and people erecting the posters are urged to wear Hi Viz clothing.

Mr Gibbons says a build-up of election posters can often have a negative impact on road safety, and election posters should not block other road signs, directional signs, Stop or Yield signs or traffic light poles.
