Tim Cullinan said ( about Michael Rowland ) : “it’s going to be a busy time on farms in the coming weeks as farming contractors begin bringing in the silage around the country. "Normally at this time of the year both the IFA and the RSA appeal for motorists to be on the lookout for tractors, trailers and other agricultural machinery exiting from fields and farmyards, and while traffic volumes have reduced, this advice still stands. "However, we are making a special appeal this year in light of the current situation to ask that anyone driving farm machinery, especially on rural roads, to cut back on their speed and understand that around every corner could be a neighbouring family or friend out for a walk, jog or a cycle within 5km of their home. "We should all expect the unexpected – we have learned already this year, whether on the farm or on the road there is no place for complacency," he said. Michael Rowland, Director Road Safety Research & Driver Education, RSA, said reminded every road user not to be distracted by wearing earphones while out walking or cycling and urge drivers not to use a mobile phone while driving tractors. "Such distractions can prevent those out walking from hearing danger approaching or prevent drivers from noticing the family out walking or cycling around that corner,” External link

Tim Cullinan said ( about Michael Rowland ) : “it’s going to be a busy time on farms in the coming weeks as farming contractors begin bringing in the silage around the country. "Normally at this time of the year both the IFA and the RSA appeal for motorists to be on the lookout for tractors, trailers and other agricultural machinery exiting from fields and farmyards, and while traffic volumes have reduced, this advice still stands. "However, we are making a special appeal this year in light of the current situation to ask that anyone driving farm machinery, especially on rural roads, to cut back on their speed and understand that around every corner could be a neighbouring family or friend out for a walk, jog or a cycle within 5km of their home. "We should all expect the unexpected – we have learned already this year, whether on the farm or on the road there is no place for complacency," he said. Michael Rowland, Director Road Safety Research & Driver Education, RSA, said reminded every road user not to be distracted by wearing earphones while out walking or cycling and urge drivers not to use a mobile phone while driving tractors.
