New Drink Driving laws in force ahead of Bank Holiday Weekend

A new provision that will see drink-drivers facing an automatic disqualification came into force at midnight last night.

Speaking at the launch, Minister Shane Ross described the measure as a significant step to clamp down on drink-driving.

Minister Ross continued to say it was “always wrong to give people the mild slap on the wrist of three penalty points for such lethal behaviour”.
