Report reckless drivers: priest

A priest in one of the parishes devastated by a horrific road crash has urged people to report reckless drivers — and act as witnesses if necessary.

Just three weeks after eight people died in a car crash in Donegal — the most people killed in a single accident since records began — Buncrana parish priest Fr John Walsh said people had to “stop glorifying cars” and making cult objects of “killing machines”.

“We adults must insist that the laws of the roads are adhered to on our highways,” Fr Walsh said. ”We must convince people that they have a duty towards others.”
