I recorded this clip off the RTE website after seeing this clip on the news here yesterday evening...

RTÉ News: Contract for mobile speed cameras signed
There are 8 of these already in use but so far I have not encountered one although that might change seeing as how they are planning to add 45 more to their arsenal.The Government has announced the introduction of 45 new mobile speed cameras which it says will be on the roads all over the country by the middle of next year.
The Minister for Justice, the Minister for Transport and the Garda Commissioner signed a €16m annual contract in Templemore today with the commercial company that will operate the system.
The cameras were first promised 11 years ago and while Dermot Ahern accepted that there was a long delay, he said the cameras would save lives.
The announcement was welcomed by the Road Safety Authority, which said in the last three years, speeding killed 157 people and injured 310.
I guess I will have to take K band alerts a LOT more seriously here in future but I do hope to encounter one so I can see how the V1 does against them.
