Gardaí are conducting a national speed enforcement operation for National Slow Down Day which runs from 7am today to 7am tomorrow.

The objective of the operation is to reduce the number of speed-related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on the roads.

The aim of National 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.

Over 106,000 speeding detections have been made nationally so far in 2017.
