A motorist was also seen doing 172km/hr in a 100km/hr zone in Jenkinstown, Co. Louth.

Chief Superintendent Paul Cleary, of the Roads Policing Bureau, said: “We would like to thank the 124,929 drivers who were found to be compliant and drove within the speed limits.

While the vast majority motorists were found to be travelling safely and well within the speed limits, there are still those who continue to drive at excessive and inappropriate speeds.

“We will continue to focus our enforcement activities on non-compliant motorists as we strive to reduce the number of fatal and serious injury collisions across our roads network”.
