Traffic Blues

12 x 24'

A fly-on-the-wall series about the work of the Irish Traffic Corps which shows just how dangerous and badly behaved we really are on our roads.
People are killed on the roads every day. From speeding, traffic jams, drunk driving, penalty points, fatigue at the wheel, the grind of the daily commute to mobile phone use at the wheel, the potential for danger on our roads is more stark than ever.

Traffic Blues, shines a light into the life of the Traffic Corps at all levels and across the country. Over six months, guards from three units were accompanied by a film crew as they went about their daily business of enforcing the laws of the road throughout the country. Incidents from their daily business were combined with the relevant footage from ground, mobile and airborne cameras to reveal the situations the traffic division has to deal with and the often shocking attitudes and the behaviour of drivers across the country.
