The objective of operation National “Slow Down” Day, according to the Gardaí, is to reduce the number of speed related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.

The aim is to remind drivers of the dangers of speeding, increase compliance with speed limits and act as a deterrent to driving at excessive and inappropriate speed.

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.

The operation will consist of high visibility speed enforcement activities on both national primary and secondary roads.

All speed enforcement technologies will be utilised, including all laser handheld speed detection devices, ROBOT vans and Cleartone/Puma in-car speed detection systems.
