Five arrested in Cavan for drink or drug driving

Five motorists were arrested in Cavan yesterday for driving under the influence of drink or drugs.

Of the five, two tested positive for alcohol, with the remaining three failing drugs tests. One of the drug drivers had both cocaine and cannabis in their system, and another driving with no insurance.

Gardai in Cavan and Monaghan are using the arrests to highlight their appeal for people to never drive while under the influence of any substance.
