61 new speed camera zones to come into effect in Ireland today
The zones are spread across 23 counties.
61 new speed camera zones around Ireland have come into effect on Tuesday morning (26 July).
The addition of the new zones brings the nationwide total to 1,373.
An Garda Síochána operate the speed camera zones via the service provider GoSafe.
Since GoSafe monitoring commenced in 2011, more than 2.2m fixed charge notices for speeding offences, both Intercept (Garda) and Non-intercept (GoSafe), have been issued.
The new zones are spread across 23 counties, with 49% on Regional Routes, 31% National Routes and 20% on other routes, such as motorways, and local roads.
The new locations were selected following an analysis of collated Garda data acquired from fatal, serious, and minor traffic collisions.
Other consideration was given to areas that were highlighted by local communities as areas of concern.
To date in 2022, there have been 94 road deaths in Ireland, an increase of 28 over the same period in 2021.
