The safety camera locations were selected based on an analysis of Garda data on fatal, serious and minor road traffic collisions and from further consideration given to locations of concern highlighted by local communities.
All new locations chosen have recorded at least two separate collisions along the stretch of road.
One new zone along the R772 in Wicklow has recorded 11 separate collisions while a new zone on the N21 in Limerick has seen nine separate crashes. The N21 claimed two more lives on Sunday when a man and woman in their 30s were killed in an accident between Adare and Patrickswell.
Safety cameras operate in areas where there is a history of speed-related collisions, known as speed enforcement zones. There are now close to 1,400 zones in operation across Ireland.
The new zones are spread across 23 counties, 49pc on regional routes, 31pc national routes and 20pc on other routes (such as motorways or local roads).
