Death driver issues at Springtown Road need to be addressed-Heaney

Sinn Féin councillor for Foyleside Conor Heaney has called on the police and other statutory agencies to clamp down on death drivers who have been using the Springtown Road in recent weeks. He said action needed to be taken before a fatality occurred:  
“There has been a noticeable increase in death driving in the Springtown Road area in recent weeks.
“In the latest incident earlier this week a young family with a toddler escaped death or injury when a stolen car crashed into their house at Derrymore Park in the early hours of the morning.
“I have requested the Department for Infrastructure to assess what additional road safety measures can be installed in the area which would make it harder for the death drivers to operate. I have also spoken to the police and other agencies to ask them to proactively clamp down on these death drivers in the coming weeks”
