Police in County Kerry, Ireland have been asked to stop targeting mourners whilst funerals are in progress.

Gardai have been parking their speed camera vans outside graveyards and have caught mourners speeding at various locations throughout the county.

It's reported that in one instance, they set up their devices just half an hour before a burial.

A number of people have complained to Kerry County Council calling the practice disrespectful.

Wonder why they feel the need to speed to a funeral ... Or it could be them next!

Isn't it an Irish joke? I regret I can't remember the (Irish?) comedian who told it.

There was this funeral in Ireland and one of the mourners was in the hearse. He commented to the driver that it was a pretty decent vehicle and wondered of it ever went quicker than walking pace. To which the driver responded by cranking up the engine and hurtling down the road at 70+

Maybe the van is checking for speeds over 5mph ?
