Today is National Slow Down Day – a dedicated day to reduce the number of speed related road collisions and to save lives.
Garda are conducting a national speed enforcement operation “Slow Down” from 7am Friday to 7am Saturday, with designated roads across the country being monitored.
While drivers should follow the speed limit on EVERY road, there is one Donegal route that will have a speed van in operation:
The N13 Lisfannon Bridgend road in Donegal will have speed enforcement in place today until tomorrow morning.
The objective of National “Slow Down” Day is to reduce the number of speed related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads. The aim of “Slow Down day” is to remind drivers of the dangers of speeding, increase compliance with speed limits and act as a deterrent to driving at excessive or inappropriate speed.
