Gardai have seized the car of an unaccompanied learner found to be driving dangerously.
Cavan Roads Policing Unit (RPU) were conducting speedchecks on the N3 when they detected the driver travelling at 167km/h in a 100km/h zone.
All 18 of Longford's county councillors have issued an open letter to Justice Minister Helen McEntee and Garda Commissioner Drew Harris in the wake of a recent upsurge in violent crime.
The motorist was also observed to be using their phone while driving.
They were stopped and Gardai discovered they were an unaccompanied learner with no L-plates.
Proceedings to follow.
