Gardaí stopped a motorbike in Dublin - for doing THREE TIMES the speed limit

The bike was travelling at almost 90 mph when gardaí intervened.

THERE’S BEING IN a hurry, and then there’s being ridiculously unsafe.

This motorcyclist falls into the latter category.

Gardaí stopped this motorbike after following it for a time early yesterday morning in south Dublin.

At the time it was travelling at almost three times the speed limit.

The limit is 50 km/h (31 mph) where the incident occurred – the bike was doing 135km/h (84 mph). Not clever.

A file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions for dangerous driving.
