Gardaí are urging motorists to ensure loads are correctly mounted and secured, following an incident in the North Tipperary/Kilkenny area yesterday evening (Saturday, September 19th).
Garda Síochána Kilkenny/Carlow has this afternoon (Sunday, September 20th) shared a video on social media showing a number of round bales falling off the trailer being towed by a tractor.
“The following video shows the importance of using straps to tie down loads.” a Garda spokesperson explained.
“As can be seen, only one strap is been used here going lengthways and the driver is travelling way too fast for the road surface.”
“This is a busy period for farms and other businesses, please ensure all loads are properly secured.” the Garda spokesperson concluded.
