Gardaí caught more than 400 drivers speeding on the roads yesterday.
As part of the Christmas and New Year road safety campaign, Gardaí monitored 42-thousand 388 vehicles yesterday.
There were 414 vehicles caught driving over the speed limit, including a motorist driving at 124 km/h in a 60 zone on the N7 at Naas in County Kildare.
One motorist in Donegal was caught travelling at 81 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on the R245 in Carrigart.
10 people were arrested on suspicion of drink driving on Christmas Day, and a further 12 were arrested before nine o’clock on St. Stephen’s morning.
Gardaí say that speeding is a “major factor” in fatal road traffic collisions, and have asked drivers to “please slow down to save lives” and never drink and drive.
