Car seized after it overtook a marked Garda car at 100kph
It was a very silly move.
A black audi was seized this afternoon after it overtook a marked Garda car. The audi was going more than 100kph and had bald tyres and had no NCT since 2015.
Gardaí are continuing to be extra vigilant around this festive season and are pushing their Christmas and New Year anti drink driving campaign with fervour.
There has been a 34% increase in the number of drink driving arrests this December, compared to 2015 and Gardaí are asking drivers to be responsible on the roads, to never drink and drive or drive while tired.

The temperatures are continuing to drop and a cold snap has been predicted meaning extra precautions on the roads are advisable.
