Traffic - message in relation to Drink Drivers

On this month’s traffic segment, Garda Derek Cloughley reinforced An Garda Síochána’s message in relation to Drink Drivers.

Drink Driving detections are up 6.5% on this time last year, An Garda Siochána’s Christmas Campaign was launched on December 1st, this includes high visibility checkpoint’s throughout the country in conjunction with the Road Safety Authority.

There are a number of ways to detect a Drunk Driver and Garda Cloughley explored these. Garda Cloughley also gave advice to pedestrians to plan their journey home if they are socialising over the Christmas Season and to use a local taxi service or have a designated driver to take them home safely.
