Van driver arrested for alleged dangerous driving on local roads near Newbridge by Naas Roads Policing Unit. 

Gardaí said: "Traffic may be light but there are many additional vulnerable road users about taking daily exercise.

If you are convicted of dangerous driving under the Road Traffic Act you could be fined up to €5,000, or be sent to prison for up to 6 months, or both.

This rises to four penalty points points and €120 in court.
