903 new safety camera zones came into effect at 6 am today bringing to a total of 1,322 safety camera zones nationwide. Several them are located on Wexford roads.
The primary purpose of safety cameras is to reduce speed related collisions, lessen injuries and save lives. 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.
An Garda Síochána appeals to all road users, in particular motorists, to familiarise themselves with these sections of the road network. They appeal to motorists to always drive at an appropriate speed, to reduce the likelihood of being involved in a fatal or serious collision.
575 safety camera zones have been removed following a review and more than 1.5 million speeding tickets were issued since introduction of safety cameras (An Garda Síochána & GoSafe) in 2010.
All zones are available on the Garda website and available for GPS Navigation providers such as Garmin, TomTom, Google Maps or Waze to download.
