I can assure the Deputy that the enforcement of road traffic legislation in relation to speeding is given high priority by the Garda and the Garda are adequately resourced and have the most up-to-date speed detection equipment available for the purpose.
The main equipment used by the Garda at present are hand held radar and in car video units. The Garda also recently acquired the GATSO system which is a sophisticated combined camera/radar/computer speed detection unit. It is the most advanced technology in speeding detection equipment available to the Garda Síochána. It is programmed to record the location, speed and registration numbers of the offending vehicle.
