Gardaí have made a number of speeding detections this week on one of the busiest roads into Letterkenny.
Drivers were caught on the dual carriageway travelling at speeds well over the 100km/hr limit.
One driver was detected doing 160 km/hr, while another was travelling at 154km/hr.
Other motorists were over the limit at 128 km/hr and 130 km/hr.
The cases were shared online by the Letterkenny Road Policing Unit, who had this warning for those who break the speed limit: “You not only risk getting a fine or a Court appearance but you put yourself and others at risk on the road each time you break the speed limit!”
Gardaí also carried out several tyre checkpoints in the Letterkenny District on Tuesday.
Some vehicles were found to have badly worn tyres, with cautions were administered to some whilst others were issued with a fine.
Gardaí said: “Please check your tyres regularly and ensure that the tread depth is not below 1.6mm, the minimum legal tread depth. It is recommended that you change your tyres when the tread depth falls below 3mm.
“Not having a proper grip on your tyres could cause your vehicle to lose control and it greatly reduces your chance of stopping on time should an unexpected obstacle appear in your path whilst driving!”Tags:
