Slow down folks, they’re now live: 903 new speed zones, including 16 in Waterford, rolled out from today
Slow down folks … more than 900 new speed zones, including 16 in Waterford, came into effect across the country this morning.
The 903 cameras will operate in areas that have a speed-related collision history where fatal, serious injury and now minor injury collisions occur.
You can check out where they are on Garda.ie.
Last week, WaterfordNow.ie revealed that the 16 new speed zones were to be introduced into Waterford in the following locations:
|Road Name||Location||Road Type||Number of Collisions|
|N25||Lacka Road, Kilmeden||National||2|
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.
