The Roads Policing Unit in Naas continues to detect speeding motorists despite Covid-19 measures meaning less vehicles on routes. 

Kildare Gardaí are mounting daily patrols and checkpoints across Co Kildare to encourage compliance with 'stay at home' rules. 

New laser speed gun devices - the TruCAM II can measure the speed of a vehicle over 1km away - so the gardaí may have clocked your speed before you even see them.

As you can see below, this motorist was detected driving at 128km/hr at a distance of nearly 250m away. 

On Tuesday, Naas Roads Policing Unit (RPU) detected a car travelling on the N7 at 150kmh in a 100kmh zone.

Gardaí said: "Please slow down if you must drive during Government restrictions due to  Covid-19.

"The roads are quieter so drive with in the speed limits and stay safe."

Naas RPU detected 10 motorists speeding on the M7 and M4 on Monday evening.
