CCTV footage is to be examined to help identify boy races who are causing problems at a town centre car park in Naas.
Cllr Anne Breen asked at a municipal meeting on Tuesday for footage of the Friary Road (Hederman’s) car park be examined by the council to help identify the boy racers who are using their vehicles for anti social behaviour.
“Local residents are very concerned that this will ultimately lead to serious accidents,” she said.
Cllr Seamus Moore agreed. He said he was very annoyed as the matter had been highlighted two or three years ago.
“It hasn’t gone away,” he said.
He asked if gardaí take over the monitoring of the cameras outside of working hours.
“I’m asking that we write to the gardaí to see why they have failed to do something about this anti social activity,” he said.
Council official David O’Grady told the members that the traffic management section had previously reported vehicles viewed on late night CCTV to the gardaí who had investigated and ‘warned off’ offenders.
“We will continue to monitor footage and report any violations to Naas Garda Station for investigation and follow up,” he said.
He said he was unsure of the level of monitoring outside of working hours but that he would report back to the members.
