Gardaí have launched almost 1,000 new speed camera locations nationwide as part of a crackdown on speeding.
Since 2010, An Garda Síochána has set out to make roads safer through the use of safety cameras, using a service provider ‘GoSafe’ to operate them on its behalf. More than 1.5m speeding tickets have been issued in this time.
The primary purpose of safety cameras is to reduce speed-related collisions, lessen injuries and save lives.
From Monday 17th February, 903 new speed enforcement zones will be designated nationwide, bringing the total number of zones to 1,322. Gardaí have also removed 575 safety camera zones following a review.
Gardaí are advising road users to become familiar with all speed enforcement zones from an interactive map on https://www.garda.ie/gosafe.html
Safety cameras operate in areas where there is a history of speed related collisions, known as speed enforcement zones, using a fleet of marked vehicles. All zones are available on the Garda website and available for GPS Navigation providers such as Garmin, TomTom, Google Maps or Waze to download.
