Motorist on the N4 caught doing 110km/hr in a 60km zone

Gardai in Sligo Leitrim clocked a motorist travelling almost twice the speed limit in a 60km zone on the N4 recently.

A Roads Policing unit in the division stopped the motorist travelling at a speed of 110km/h in a 60km/h zone.

Gardai say the weather at the time was extremely wet with torrential showers.
