An Garda Síochána is introducing 903 new speed zones from 6am today (Monday, February 17th), which will bring the total number of safety camera zones nationwide to 1,322.
The primary purpose of safety cameras is to reduce speed-related collisions, lessen injuries and save lives, according to a statement from An Garda Síochána.
Superintendent Tony Lonergan of the Garda National Roads Policing Bureau said: “The safety cameras are proven life-savers and only operate in areas which have a speed-related collision history where fatal, serious injury and now minor injury collisions occur.”
“By identifying and targeting these-high risk areas, our aim is to continue to reduce the number and severity of collisions, thus save more lives and prevent more injuries from occurring.”
“This makes the roads safer for every road user. There is no doubt these safety cameras save lives.”
The locations can be found on the Garda website and are being shared with satellite navigation companies.
