An Garda Síochána wants everyone to enjoy the Easter Bank Holiday festivities in safety, with the message being that anybody driving vehicle is aware of the holiday enforcement campaign.
For the upcoming Easter weekend, Garda resources will be deployed with the objective of increasing compliance amongst road users and improving road safety.
Motorists are advised that inappropriate speed is the single greatest contributory factor to road deaths and serious injuries.
Over the Easter holiday period many people will set out to visit family and friends, some undertaking long journeys. Drivers are urged to be vigilant and to take all necessary steps to ensure their safety and the safety of other road users. Drivers should allow ample time for journeys and not to drive if they are tired. Drivers should pay attention to the speed limit signs posted on all roads but especially on entering built up areas. Garda enforcement activity will be conducted on sections of the road network that have a propensity for speed related collisions and will target all vehicles, including commercial vehicles of all classifications.
