Seven drink drivers arrested in one district over 24 hours

The drivers were caught in the Kildare area in just one day.

GARDAÍ CAUGHT SEVEN drink drivers in one county in the space of 24 hours.

Officers detected those over the limit in the Kildare district. In one instance, a driver was twice the legal limit.

On another occasion, a drink driver who had no insurance or licence and who was already disqualified from driving was detected in the Leixlip area of the county.

According to the gardaí’s official Twitter account, it has been a busy period for officers.

Meanwhile, a suspected drink driver was involved in a crash in Dublin. The driver was taken to hospital and is understood not to have been injured in the collision.

Gardaí posted a picture of the wreckage and urged motorists never to risk driving if they are under the influence.
