Driver of van towing trailer caught travelling at 130km/hr

The driver of a van and trailer combination was brought to a halt by Gardaí over the weekend.

Laois Roads Policing Unit vehicle stopped the vehicle for a speeding offence on the M7 on Sunday, October 25th.

In a brief post on social media, Garda Síochána Laois Offaly, said: “Laois Roads Policing Unit stopped a vehicle which was towing a trailer for a speeding offence on the M7 today.”

“The speed limit when towing a trailer is 80kph on ALL roads. A Fixed Charge Notice has been issued to this driver.”


According to the Road Safety Authority, the maximum speed limit for a vehicle towing a trailer is 80km/hr.

This, it added, also applies on roads where the posted road sign speed limit is higher.

Drivers are subject to the lowest posted speed sign, so it will not always be possible to travel at 80km/hr, the authority noted.
