16 new safety camera zones now in effect on Louth roads
Sixteen new safety camera zones came into effect on roads in Co Louth from 6am this morning.
The new safety cameras are part of 903 new zones introduced around the country as part of a Safety Camera Expansion programme announced by Gardaí yesterday.
This will bring to 1,322 the total number of safety camera zones nationwide.
As well as 17 existing camera zones, this brings to 33 the number within Co Louth with 25 having been removed.
The zones include two on the motorway, seven on national roads, 22 on regional roads, one on local roads and one on ‘other roads’. Locally, roads which will now be monitored include the Blackrock Road and the Avenue Road.
These areas will be monitored by the GoSafe vans that have been in operation since 2010.
