The Council receives over 300 requests annually for statutory signing and lining measures.
The Traffic Advisory Group (TAG) deals with all of these requests.
This group was formally established in August 2006 and comprises representatives from An Garda Síochána and engineers of the Traffic Section.
As well as discussing requests received from the public, the elected members, Dublin Bus and business groups, TAG examines issues identified directly by the Traffic Section and An Garda Síochána.
The TAG meets monthly for discussion on an agenda of items, a copy of which is circulated to the elected members for their information. The recommendations of each meeting of the TAG, is brought to the Area Committees for noting under Council Business entitled “Consultation with Garda Commissioner”.
As this is a statutory or legal procedure decided upon by the traffic engineers and An Garda Siochana a formal request for TAG items should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to the Transportation Department, Traffic Section, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Marine Road, Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.
It is important to outline the reasons for your request and include, if possible, supporting evidence as to why it should be warranted.
A TAG requested can be any of the following:
- no entry

- mandatory signs
- prohibitory signs
- single yellow line

Once a lining or signing request has been provided you are legally required to abide by them or you will be subject to a punishment or penalty.
