Groundhog day for Gardaí as banned taxi driver caught behind the wheel again in midlands town

Taxi driver has second car seized in a week

A taxi driver who was detained a week ago has been caught again by Gardaí in a midlands town.

Gardaí stopped the individual while behind the wheel on Thursday, March 25.

"Earlier today a taxi driver who was arrested only last week for driving while disqualified returned to Portlaoise driving a different taxi," said gardaí.

The outcome was a case of deja vu for the guards and the driver.

"Same result for this driver however as they were arrested again and charged to appear before Portlaoise District Court. The vehicle was also seized," said gardaí.
