The Road Safety Authority have introduced 750 privately-owned mobile speed cameras in Ireland in an attempt to further lower the number of deaths on the roads.
The camera's will be positioned in location where road traffic accidents have occurred in the past.

Noel Dempsey, Minister for Transport said "The purpose of these new safety cameras is simple: to save lives and prevent serious injuries on our roads. No more, no less.
'Excessive speed is still the top killer on Irish roads. These new cameras will help the gardaí in their efforts to make our roads safer.'
So far this year 197 people have died on the road in Ireland.
