Garda Launch 'Open City' Traffic Operation

A Garda operation to ease the flow of public transport in cities and minimise traffic disruption in the run up to Christmas has launched.

Operation Open City will run in Limerick, Cork and Dublin until Christmas Eve, with extra officers deployed to boost visibility and enforcement.

Gardaí will patrol major arterial routes and link roads during core commuter hours. There will also be particular focus on traffic management issues around car parks at major shopping areas.

The operation will run alongside the Christmas Road Safety Enforcement Campaign to reduce road fatalities and help keep people safe.
