A driver on Louth's M1 motorway, who was stopped by gardai driving at 154kph recently, was hit with a Fixed Charge Penalty Notice (FCPN) for speeding.
The driver's excuse of being 'late' for work failed to convince gardai.
As the gardai state in the tweet on their official account below - 'Speed kills. Arrive alive.'
