Two motorists were detected travelling at 79 km/h in a 60 km/h zone yesterday, as part of Project Edward.
Yesterday was designated "European Day Without A Road Death", also known as Project Edward, and Gardai say there were no reports of any fatalities on Ireland's roads, however, they say there's no room for complacency.
During the 24 hours of Project Edward, GoSafe vans checked the speed of almost 130,000 vehicles across the country, of which 256 were travelling in excess of the applicable speed limit.
In Mayo, a motorist was detected travelling at 79 km/h in a 60 km/h zone on the L133 at Lowpark, Charlestown, while another motorist was caught driving at the same speed in a 60 km/h zone on the R334 at Ballyshingadaun, Ballinrobe.
Gardai say Project Edward is an important initiative in keeping road safety in the minds of all road users.
