An Garda Síochána will conduct a Bank Holiday Roads Enforcement Operation for the Easter Bank Holiday 2024 as bank holiday weekends are one of the periods where road users are at the highest risk of being involved in a fatal or serious road traffic collision

The campaign aims to protect vulnerable road users and to reduce the number of fatal and serious collisions.  55 people have lost their lives in Road Traffic Collisions on Irish roads so far in 2024.

The enforcement operation is focusing on the dangers of intoxicated driving, speeding, mobile phone use / distracted driving, and seatbelt offences.

There will also be a focus on increasing drivers’ awareness of the dangers of driving on mornings, following nights out, and reinforcing to drivers that there is a strong possibility of being stopped and tested for alcohol and/or drugs.The Road Safety Operation is now underway and will continue until 7am on Tuesday April 2nd.
