Gardaí issue warning ahead of Bank holiday weekend

This upcoming June Bank Holiday weekend, gardaí across the county will be conducting high visibility checkpoints and speed checks. Their focus will be on the detection of key lifesaver offences, such as, speeding, drink and drug driving and the non-wearing of seat-belts. 

Gardaí are urging motorists to slow down and ensure that they remain within the legal speed limit at all times. They are again urging people to never drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
