Gardai focus on Road safety and crime in local communities this weekend

Almost a thousand motorists have been caught speeding on the roads in the last 24 hours.

Hundreds of speed detection points remain in place across the country as part of An Garda Siochana’s ‘Operation Slowdown’.

75 people have died on Irish roads since January, and the June Bank Holiday has been deemed the most dangerous weekend of the year.

Carlow Sergeant John Foley says that they are running two campaigns across Carlow and Kilkenny this weekend.

Operation Slow down is focussing on speed and Supporting Safer Communities campaign is an effort to reduce local crime.
