A motorist detected speeding last night was subsequently arrested for suspected drug driving by the Buncrana Roads Policing Unit.
The driver was stopped by Gardaí for a speeding at 136Kph in a 100Kph zone, and then failed the roadside oral fluid test.
A fixed charge penalty notice will issue for the speeding offence and further test results will determine whether or not this driver now has to make a journey to Court.
“It goes without saying that driving while under the influence of drugs/alcohol is dangerous and irresponsible. Never take risks while on the road. One poor decision when it comes to road safety could just be the last decision you ever get to make,” a garda spokesperson said.
“Road conditions are poor at present because of the recent heavy rainfall. We are asking all drivers to slow down as it takes longer it to stop a vehicle on a wet surface
