Police have released an image of a Ford Focus that was involved in a collision between Coleraine and Limavady.
The post on the PSNI North Coast Facebook page said “This used to be a brand new Ford Focus car, not that you’d think it now.”
“It recently ended up like this on the Coleraine to Limavady mountain road.”
“Please take a second……”
“Imagine being involved in this? “It happens almost every day on our road!!”
“Is that phone call or text really that important?”
“A few extra mph doesn’t actually make that much difference to when you arrive. An extra check to see if the road is clear takes seconds, please remember motorcyclists are much smaller and harder to see!
“If you are involved in a serious RTC, we will seize your phone and check what was in use prior to the incident!”
“It’s not only the police you have to watch out for, we get many reports from members of the public of careless and dangerous driving which can end up before the courts, especially when the latest HD dashcams are used as evidence.”
“Please Drive Safely!”
The investigation into this incident is still ongoing.
