A driver who was stopped by Gardai for using a phone while driving is facing court after testing positive for being under the influence of cocaine.
The driver was caught by the Buncrana Roads Policing Unit on Tuesday afternoon.
The person was first detected using a mobile phone while driving. Once stopped, they were asked to take a roadside oral fluid test and tested positive for cocaine.
Gardaí took to Facebook today to issue this plea: “Please do not take unnecessary risks on the road. Never hold/use a mobile phone while driving. Never drive while under the influence of alcohol/drugs.
“Please make the decision today to make road safety one of your top priorities and help us make our roads a safer place for everyone.”
