Half of drivers 'admit speeding'
21 hours ago
Almost half of all drivers have admitted breaking the speed limit in the last month, it has emerged.
Noel Brett, of the Road Safety Authority, said drivers must realise their foot is on the accelerator and that excess speed is the single biggest contributory factor to deaths and serious injuries on Irish roads.
The AA survey also revealed motorists disregard speed limits despite more than 40% being been stopped at a Garda checkpoint in the past year.
