Gardai publicise Bank Holiday weekend speeders, including car doing 171 in 100 zone
The gardai and their speed cameras were out in force over the August Bank Holiday weekend and they published some of the worst offenders on their Twitter account.
The speeds motorists were doing across the country on all different types of roads were truly frightening.
Here are some of the examples posted online by the gardai this weekend.
