BROUGHAN WELCOMES MINISTER FOR TRANSPORT’S COMMENTS ON DRINK DRIVING

Deputy Tommy Broughan today echoes the praise of PARC (Promoting Awareness, Responsibility and Care on our Roads) for the comments made by Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, on the need to crack down on those who drink and drive. 187 people tragically lost their lives on Irish roads during 2016, which was an increase of 25 from the previous year. Thousands of others were seriously injured. Figures show that the Gardaí arrested more than 730 people for drink driving over the Christmas period this year which was an increase of 34% on the same period in 2015.
