"When someone decides to speed they put themselves and members of their community at risk, particularly children, older people, cyclists and other motorists," said Superintendent Thomas Murphy, Garda National Roads Policing Bureau.

"Our priority is to ensure that the vast majority of people who use the roads responsibly are not put in danger by a minority of reckless drivers who continue to drive at excessive speed.

"GoSafe vans operate in areas that have a speed-related collision history where fatal, serious injury and minor injury collisions occur. In addition, locations which have been highlighted by members of the community as being areas of concern, have been included in the new zones. By identifying and targeting these high-risk areas, the aim is to reduce the number of fatal and serious injury collisions."
