Driving this morning? ... Gardaí are carrying out a '24-hour speed enforcement marathon'

Let’s be careful out there.

GARDAÍ SAY THEY will be out in force this morning carrying out speed checks as part of a cross-European crackdown.

The effort got under way at 6am and will continue until tomorrow morning.

They’re calling it a ’24-hour speed enforcement marathon’.

“196 people tragically lost their lives on Irish roads last year. To date 47 people have died, and although that is 5 fewer than this date last year, it is still 47 too many,” Chief Superintendent Aidan Reid said.

“One road death is one too many.”

“There are 727 locations, known as ‘speed enforcement zones’ where the safety cameras operate, and which have a history of fatal and serious injury collisions.

“To inform and protect motorists we publish these high risk locations on the Garda website, so drivers can become familiar with where they are, but most importantly contribute to making the roads safer by slowing down.”

More information can be found on the Garda website.
