Sunday a better day for marathon
ONCE again, drivers were restricted by the May Day marathon yesterday. Not everyone was on holiday and many still required to drive to work.
It would make much more sense to stage this event on a Sunday morning. The Belfast roads are empty most Sunday mornings. It would also allow recovery time for competitors before returning to their work on the Tuesday.
It must be said that organisers of Belfast events are not always considerate of the opinions of many road users.
