Gardaí detected 414 speeding cars on St. Stephen's Day

Be careful out there.

On Wednesday, we shared the news that a total of ten people were arrested on suspicion of drink driving on Christmas Day alone.


Gardaí revealed that a number of the drivers that were arrested refused a breath sample, and will now automatically face a four year driving ban.

It has now been revealed that on St. Stephen's Day, 414 of the 42,388 vehicles that were monitored, were in excess of the speed limit.

An Garda Síochána posted the news on their Twitter page, as part of their Christmas and New Year road safety campaign.


They also posted a message urging people who may have been out last night to ensure that they are safe to drive today, which read: "Out last night? Please ensure you ARE FIT TO DRIVE this morning ... if in doubt, do not take the chance ..... 3 speeders intercepted this morning in Limerick City, all negative for alcohol thankfully."
