A DRIVER in a hurry on the Dock Road in Limerick this morning was in for a rude awakening when Gardaí clocked him driving at 91km/h in a 50km/h zone.

The hurried driver was just one of the examples Gardaí revealed a few hours into National Slow Down Day, a Garda operation aimed at encouraging people to take the foot off the accelerator and obey the speed limits.

Another driver this morning, also on the Dock Road, was clocked at 69km/h in the same 50km/h zone.

The fastest driver in the country this morning was clocked speeding at 146km/h in a 120km/h zone on the M4 Ardnamullan, Clonard, Meath.

Gardaí are continuing to appeal to drivers to slow down, save lives, and avoid hefty fines and possible court appearances which could lead to a driving ban.
