The National Automobile Association has issued a safety alert about car crashes in Ireland.
It said drivers should not be driving at speeds over 70km/h (50mph) and the road is not well marked for pedestrians or cyclists.
The NAA said drivers need to be alert for pedestrians and cyclists on the roadways and ensure their visibility is clear of parked vehicles.
“The roads are not well-marked for pedestrians.
The number of crashes on the roads in 2016 is lower than the number of collisions in 2015.
The NAA is concerned that the road surfaces are not clearly marked.
We are also concerned that drivers do not have the awareness and awareness required to properly observe the road, which makes them more vulnerable to collision,” NAA spokeswoman, Joanna Molloy said.
She said road users need to pay particular attention to pedestrians and motorists on the right hand side of the road.
“Pedestrians should be able to cross the road in a safe manner but drivers should also be able do so safely.
We encourage drivers to use their signals and turn signals as they cross the street to help avoid collisions,” Ms Mollay said.
Ms Molloys advice comes as the NAA has said that road users should pay particular heed to cyclists.
It says cyclists should ride with their feet on the pedals, rather than turning left or right.
“Cyclists should be riding with their hands behind their back, which is a safe position for cyclists,” Ms Loughan said.
“You should also take extra care to cross a road safely if you are travelling with a child or elderly person.
You should ride in the centre of the roadway and be aware of the traffic ahead.”
