Local councils in Ireland will have to put up hundreds of signs across the country to alert drivers where the new mobile speed cameras could be operating .
Assistant Garda Commissioner John Twomey said in October 2010 that up to 1,500 roads across the country were being designated as speed enforcement zones as part of the roll-out of the mobile speed camera network. Each zone will have a sign erected to warn motorists they face the prospect of being caught.
He said – “Road signs will be erected at roadsides to inform drivers they are entering a speed enforcement zone.”
Has anyone seen these signs yet?
GoSafe will be given a list every month of the locations where gardai want the 45 vans deployed. They will also be obliged to carry out surveys to find stretches of road where 85pc of vehicles drive above the speed limit. These areas will be added to the list of speed enforcement zones.
The new cameras will be augmented by more than 100 garda vehicles which are already in place and the new traffic corps vehicles which were put into operation last year.
