Transport authorities recently considered putting a screen down the middle of the M50 to stop 'rubbernecking'.
There are an average of 100 incidents a month on the motorway, which can cause onlookers to slow down as they pass.
The Times Ireland reports that the idea to erect a screen was eventually ruled out on safety grounds.
Conor Faughnan from AA Ireland thinks the right decision was made.
"To me, it seems like an over-engineered solution, something that is costly and difficult, out of proportion to the problem it is trying to solve," he said.
"I'm pleased they have set it aside."
