National Slow Down Day

National Slow Down Day takes place over 24 hours from 7 am on Friday 25 May 2018 to 7 am on Saturday 26 May.

Slow Down Day aims to reduce the number of speed-related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.

Excessive and inappropriate speed is a major factor in road traffic collisions – so reducing motorists’ speed is essential. Last year saw 157 road fatalities.

The Garda Síochána urges motorists to slow down, obey speed limits and take road conditions into account.
