Gardaí man extra checkpoints on Bank Holiday Monday

titleDrivers warned not to drive after drinking the night before

Drivers on Tipperary roads are being warned not to get behind the wheel with alcohol in their system.

Gardaí have been manning checkpoints throughout the county this bank holiday weekend…with specific emphasis on drink driving, speed and mobile phones.

Traffic volumes will build throughout today as people return from visiting family and friends over the extended weekend.

Garda Niamh Dooley of the Traffic Corp says it’s essential that the alcohol has had enough time to leave your system before getting behind the wheel.
