The car that was pulled in by Laois gardaí this evening

A DRIVER caught doing a whopping 170kph in Laois this evening is facing a court appearance.

A speed check on the M7 motorway near Portlaoise recorded the car doing 50kph above the speed limit.

The motorist was pulled in by members of the Laois Roads Policing Unit, who were on patrol in the area.

Gardaí say that some drivers still aren’t getting the message, despite a highly publicised campaign against speeding following 96 road deaths so far this year.

A prosecution has commenced against the driver, who will appear at an upcoming sitting of Portlaoise District Court.
