The Longford Road Policing Unit earlier this afternoon, Sunday, August 5, arrested a learner driver who was speeding and also failed a breath test.

An Garda Síochána, via their official Twitter account, tweeted that they were conducting a speed checkpoint at Bracklin Road, Edgeworthstown when they stopped a motorist travelling at 87 kph in a 50kmph.

It turned out to be a learner driver unaccompanied, there was no NCT or TAX on the vehicle and the driver also failed a breath test. The driver was arrested and charged and a court appearance will follow.
