Gardaí insist speed vans save lives and the purpose of the cameras is to reduce speed-related collisions and lessen injuries. Road deaths have dropped from 415 in 2000 to 148 in 2019.

The gardaí want to make motorists aware that although the speed zones may have changed in many areas, the gardai and the road division units will still be out on our road enforcing dangerous driving laws.

Safety cameras operate in areas where there is a history of speed-related collisions, known as speed enforcement zones, using a fleet of marked vehicles.

The 27 sites in Wicklow are part of 903 new speed zones are being introduced nationwide.
