Roads Policing Officers are concerned by the number of serious smashes in recent weeks, and say it's only a matter of time before a crash costs someone their life.

Motorists are being urged to be cautious during the school holidays.

The police and the Department of Infrastructure are reiterating their road safety message following a number of recent crashes.

Drivers are asked to obey the speed limit, allow extra time for off-peak travel and ensure that children are restrained correctly.
