Cork City's Roads Policing Unit (RPU) stopped three drivers for driving offences last night (Monday, January 13). 

At around 9pm yesterday the Gardaí stopped a car after observing a young boy unrestrained, standing between the front two seats. The boy was talking to the driver. 

A Fixed Charged Penalty Notice is to be issued to the driver.

Then at around 10pm the Cork City Roads Policing Unit stopped another car. This driver was speeding through the Jack Lynch Tunnel at 124km/hr in an 80km/hr zone. 

Gardaí then conducted checks on the driver, which confirmed that they were disqualified. The driver was arrested and charged to court.

Later on that same night, the City RPU conducted a Mandatory Intoxicant Testing checkpoint.

They observed a car driving erratically and then turning away from the checkpoint. The Gardaí stopped the car and the driver was found to be intoxicated and disqualified. 

The driver was arrested and court is to follow.

This was the second disqualified driver caught on Cork roads in one night.
