Gardaí In Kerry To Conduct ‘Slow Down’ Day

Posted by


GARDAI in Kerry and around the country will conduct a speed enforcement operation “Slow Down”, supported by the Road Safety Authority for a 24 hour period from 7am on Friday to 07am on Saturday.

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

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.

The operation will consist of high visibility speed enforcement in speed enforcement zones, which now number over 1,000 nationwide, as well as the delivery of a road safety message through the use of national, local and social media.

Government Departments, Local Authorities, public and private sector fleet operators have been invited to participate in the initiative by circulating employees with the key message to “Slow Down” and, whether driving for business or private purposes, to always drive within the speed limit and at a speed appropriate to the prevailing conditions.
