Longford gardaí clampdown on driving offences

The Longford Roads Policing Unit has been busy in recent times clamping down on a variety of driving offences.

Yesterday, Wednesday, January 5, gardaí observed a vehicle break a red light and the driver subsequently tested positive for cannabis, with court proceedings to follow. 

At a checkpoint in Longford, the driver produced a licence which was believed to be false. The car and driving licence were seized for further examination. 

During speed checks prior to the New Year, gardaí detected a car travelling at 126kph in a 80kph zone and the driver was stopped and a fixed charge penalty notice was issued.

Gardaí also urged people to be conscious of the needs of others and park in an appropriate designated parking space after they observed a car parked in a disabled parking bay without a permit.

The car was towed away and a fixed charge penalty notice was issued to the driver.
