A variable message sign (VMS), also sometimes referred to as a matrix sign, is an electronic traffic sign used on motorways (and some other major routes) to give drivers information about special events and to warn them about traffic congestion, accidents, incidents, roadworks or speed limits on specific sections of the route. The signs may also suggest (or instruct) drivers to take alternative routes, limit speed, warn of duration and location of the incidents or just inform of the traffic conditions.
Irish National Primary Road N7/Motorway M7 (E20)

The N7/M7 route is a national primary road/motorway in Ireland. It runs for 18k km (116 miles), connecting Limerick and Dublin. The majority of the route (between Naas and Limerick) is motorway standard and is designated as the M7 motorway. The road passes through the midlands of Ireland, and acts as a trunk route out of Dublin for the N8 and N9 national primary routes to Cork and Waterford respectively. It forms part of European route E20. The section of the N7 between Naas and the M50 Motorway is the second busiest road in the country with frequent daily tailbacks from the Naas North junction on the southbound side.
