Tipperary Garda Traffic Corps stopped an Audi manufactured car, on the outskirts of Thurles last night after the vehicle was identified by officers as being carelessly driven.

On inspection, police officers noted that the windscreen was tinted to an extreme level, thus causing the driver to have limited visibility of the road ahead.

The driver also tested positive for the drugs Cocaine and Cannabis and was arrested on suspicion of ‘Drug Driving’.

The maximum penalty for drink/drug driving in Ireland is a €5000 fine and/or imprisonment for up to 6 months.
