Almost 96-thousand motorists were caught speeding on Irish roads in the first eight months of this year.
In an effort to reduce the number of speed related collisions and deaths, Gardaí have started National Slow Down Day.
From seven o'clock this morning, until seven o'clock tomorrow, there'll be an increased Garda presence on the roads.
117 people have died on Irish roads so far this year.
Chief Superintendent Paul Cleary from the Roads Policing Bureau is urging motorists to slow down.
