A LEARNER driver who tested positive for cannabis is regretting a phone call in Laois this morning.
After the motorist was stopped for holding a mobile phone while driving, the Laois Roads Policing Unit uncovered a list of traffic offences.
The driver proved to be a learner permit holder, who was unaccompanied and not displaying L plates.
Both the tax and insurance displayed on the vehicle were out of date.
To top it all off, the driver tested positive for cannabis following a roadside drug test.
The car was seized, the culprit was arrested and an upcoming court appearance is in store.
