More than 750 drivers were caught speeding on National Slow Down Day, including one motorist driving at 194km/h.

The national Garda campaign, supported by the Road Safety Authority, ran for 24 hours from 7am on Friday.


Over 163,000 vehicles were checked over the course of the day, with 755 drivers found to be over the speed limit.

Two notable cases were in Co Cork, where one driver was detected doing 194km/h in a 100km zone on the N25 in Castlemartyr.

Another was caught travelling at 112km/h in a 50km zone on Main Street, Charleville.

Gardaí continue to appeal to motorists to slow down to save lives after an almost 10-year high in road deaths last year.
