24 people arrested for drink driving in Cavan and Monaghan since the 1st of December

24 people have been arrested for drink driving in Cavan and Monaghan since the 1st of December – a 35% increase on the same period last year.

Motorists heading out over Christmas are being urged to ‘Park It, Lock It and Leave it” and not take the risk by drink driving.

Nationally, 513 motorists have been arrested since the start of this year’s Garda campaign targeting drink-driving.

Inspector Kevin Gavigan says the Cavan/Monaghan Traffic Corps will be out in force over the festive period to catch people drink driving.
