THERE were over 30 people detected for drink or drug-driving in Donegal in January.
Gardaí have confirmed that there were 17 incidents of drug-driving within the Donegal Division last month.
There were also 14 drivers detected drink-driving in January.
Gardaí have expressed particular concern about the high volume of drug-driving incidents.
“We’re not even getting to the tip of the iceberg in relation to drug-driving,” a Garda spokesperson said.
Last month, there were several drug seizures carried out in Donegal. The seizures resulted in Gardaí finding various quantities of ecstasy, cocaine and cannabis.
The spokesperson said: “One of big things has been that there have been quite a number of successful drug seizures. It’s a positive from our point of view.”Tags:
