Dublin streets were not designed for the current heavy traffic.
The banks of the Liffey in Dublin suffer from daily traffic chaos. Lorry drivers have to manoeuvre their trucks through Victorian gateways designed for horse-drawn drays causing traffic to build up.
One of the worst causes of traffic holdups can be seen any day at one of Dublin's busiest spots, the Quayside.
The problem is especially bad in the docklands and Ringsend. Why regulations have not been introduced to require these entrances to be widened to allow trucks flow in and out of these premises with ease?
If time is money, then it's been criminally squandered all over Dublin through this stupid carry on.
