Disqualified driver app-rehended by gardai in Kilkenny village
A disqualified driver was caught red-handed by Kilkenny officers who were armed with the new Garda mobile device app.
A local Garda spokesperson confirmed the driver was arrested in Mooncoin yesterday morning. The suspect was charged and is due to appear before court.
The Garda mobility app helps frontline gardai to root out drivers who are not properly licensed, disqualified, or haven’t got tax or insurance.
The mobile phone-based app also allows gardai to check licence and registration details with a number of different databases and enable a garda to issue fixed charge penalties (FPNs) from the roadside.
