Average Speed Camera Enforcement

Now live in Dublin Tunnel…

Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) working with An Garda Síochána and Dublin Tunnel operator Egis announce Ireland’s first average speed camera enforcement system to go live on June 1st 2017. Traffic levels through Dublin Tunnel have increased by 40% over the last 5 years and as a result there is statistically, an increase in the potential for collisions and incidents. Average speed camera enforcement systems look to mitigate this potential because statistics show that there is typically a 50% reduction in the collision rate once in operation.
80 km per hour and speed camera road signs

The average speed camera enforcement system monitors a driver’s average speed while driving through the Dublin Tunnel and if a driver is above the 80 km/h speed limit the driver will be in violation and enforcement penalties will apply.

Once the average speed camera enforcement system determines that a vehicle has exceeded the speed limit, it will automatically create a record of the violation which will then be transmitted to An Garda Síochána for their action. The enforcement procedure will mirror the existing procedures developed by An Garda Síochána for the processing of speeding offences that incur a fixed charge and applicable penalty points. The fixed charge penalty for speeding currently is an €80 fine and 3 penalty points on your licence, increasing to 5 penalty points and an increased fine if convicted in court.
