Attention has been called to the number of people arrested on suspicion of drink- or drug-driving in Co Tipperary.

Inspector James White called on people to consider what they may be visiting upon others, when thinking about getting behind the wheel while under the influence.

Figures have revealed that 480 people in Co Tipperary were arrested in 2018 on suspicion of driving under the influence of drink or drugs – a year when 11 people died on the county’s roads, three of whom were pedestrians.
