Here all the garda speed checks in Ireland over the next 24 hours

DRIVERS in Ireland are being given a heads up on where to expect garda speed checks this weekend.

And already 44 vehicles have been found to be breaking speed limits as Friday morning traffic hit the roads.

In Mayo one driver was recorded driving at 106km/h in a 80km/h zone, while another offender in Naas, Co. Kildare was busted travelling at 139km/h in a 120km/h zone on the M7 at Osberstown.

Over the next 24 hours gardaí are asking motorists across Ireland to slow down and have released a list of where they’ll be checking speeds on Irish roads.

The campaign is part of National Slow Down Day, whihc is being supported by the Road Safety Authority.

Check will be in place from right across the country from Mayo to Kerry and Cork to Kildare.

Gardaí have been out in force across the country since 7am this morning - they've already checked the speed of over 18,000 vehicles - and will be monitoring driving habits at the locations listed below until 7am tomorrow, October 21.

“The objective is to reduce the number of speed related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads,” An Garda Síochána said.

“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.”
