PIC: Driver stopped going over twice the speed limit in Longford

An absolutely dangerous speed.

Gardaí in Longford stopped a driver on Saturday who was going well over twice the speed limit on a wet road.

In a tweet on their official Twitter account, An Garda Síochána wrote: "Longford Roads Policing Unit detected a driver travelling at 116km in a 50km zone, heavy rain and a lot of surface water at the time. Suspect was arrested and taken to Longford Garda Station where he was charged with Dangerous Driving."

The driver will appear in court to face the charge.

The arrest follows another situation on Friday night in which a driver was stopped going 200km/h on the Navan Road in a car that they had purportedly borrowed.

In that case the car was seized and the driver charged.
