Slow down folks, they’re now live: 903 new speed zones, including 17 in Kilkenny, rolled out

Slow down folks … more than 900 new speed zones, including 27 in Kilkenny, came into effect across the country this morning.

The 903 cameras will operate in areas that have a speed-related collision history where fatal, serious injury and now minor injury collisions occur.

You can check out where they are on Garda.ie.

Last week, KilkennyNow.ie revealed that the 17 new speed zones were to be introduced into Kilkenny in the following locations:

Road Name Location Road Type Number of Collisions
M9 Lukeswell Motorway 3
M9 Stoneyford Motorway 2
M9 Paulstown Motorway 2

R705 Graiguenamanagh Regional 3
R887 John’s Street, Kilkenny Regional 9
