Poll: How often do you break the speed limit?
Gardaí checked the speed of over 140,000 vehicles yesterday.

GARDAÍ HAVE THIS morning released the statistics from the annual National Slowdown Day which promotes safer driving among motorists.

Officers and GoSafe speed vans together checked 140,223 vehicles and detected 225 drivers travelling in excess of the applicable speed limit.

On a number of occasions, motorists were breaking the limit by over 40 km/h. However, gardaí have reminded motorists that the speed limit is not a target and being over the designated limit – no matter by how much – can cause fatalities on our roads.

So, this morning we want to know: How often do you break the speed limit?

Poll Results:

Daily (4398)
Rarely (2909)
A couple of times a week (2030)
Never (1064)
