Gardaí in Kildare arrested a driver and charged them with dangerous driving after catching the motorist doing more than double the speed limit yesterday.

The driver was clocked doing 171kmh in an 80kmh zone by the Naas Roads Policing Unit on the R402. The penalty that the person behind the wheel can face is a fine of up to €5,000 and disqualification from driving.

It was one of a number of detections made by Gardaí in Kildare as they carry out some extra Bank Holiday enforcements to make the roads safer, with a number of drivers also being caught on the M4 in north Kildare.
