Gardaí are planning to install speed cameras at 300 extra locations as part of a crackdown on speeding motorists.

New figures show that privately operated speed cameras are already catching 160,000 motorists annually for breaking the speed limit, which now attracts three penalty points and an €80 fine.

But the number of mobile speed camera locations is going to be raised from 747 now to over 1,141 under a new six-year contract.
