Gardaí need to crackdown on boy-racers in the Castlebar area with the help of surveillance technology.
That’s according to local Councillor Martin McLoughlin, who has cited two areas close to the town that he wants the local roads policing unit to focus on.
Derrinumera, on the main Castlebar to Newport Road, and Buckadoon crossroads on the R312 leading to Belmullet, are the two most problematic areas, according the Fianna Fail member.
Cllr McLoughlin also wants infra-red cameras utilised to detect those who are responsible for these late night noise disturbances and to get them off the road.
He told Midwest News the matter must be tackled head-on by local authorities.
