Noticeable rise in number of traffic accidents in the region in recent days

There has been a rise in the number of traffic accidents in the region in recent days.

The poor weather conditions over the last two weeks have caused a build-up of standing water on the roads.

Gardaí in Monaghan have stated that these adverse conditions have seen an increase in the number of road collisions and accidents throughout the region.

They went on to say that these accidents were particularly prevalent at junctions and bends, and are urging all motorists to take extra caution on the roads while this weather continues.
