Circuit Judge slams Donegal’s car culture

A CIRCUIT Court Judge has hit out at the culture of modified cars, speeding and dangerous driving that results in death and serious injury on Donegal roads.

Speaking at Letterkenny Circuit Court, Judge John O’Hagan said that in his six years as a judge here, he has dealt with up to 14 cases of death by dangerous driving, including the death of two serving gardaí, as well as many cases where people suffered serious injury.
“I regret to say that it is not over yet. I’m aware of a number of very serious cases in the pipeline where many people died”, John O’Hagan said.
He said during his time in Donegal, he has seen first hand not only the cases before the court, but also the marks on the road where examples of dangerous driving could be clearly seen.
