A speed van is now in operation tonight on the approach to Newbridge town.
Currently the van is monitoring motorists speed, located at Toughers, on the Newbridge town side.
There are two ways you can be detected speeding, through Intercept Detection and Non – Intercept Detection. An intercept detection occurs when a Garda stops an offender at the time of the offence. A Garda can input the details of the offence into a handheld computer or write details of the offence onto a Fixed Charge Notice. A non-intercept detection occurs where there is no Garda intervention at the scene of the offence. Non-intercept offences are recorded by:–
Fixed and mobile speed cameras
Video recording equipment e.g. Mobile Speed Detection Vehicles
Handheld computers or Notepads as a result of an allegation made via Traffic Watch
Gardaí will not issue notices
