Gory Roads Policing and the RSA set up a checkpoint in Bunclody, Co, Wexford today, with a truck driver set to appear in court as a result.

The driver was pulled over by Gardaí at the checkpoint when it was discovered he had broken tachograph regulations and not taken adequate breaks. This led to on-duty Gardaí imposing a mandatory 45-minute rest period on the driver.

The driver, as confirmed on the Garda Twitter page, will appear in court in relation to driver card and the aforementioned tachograph offences.

“Gorey Roads Policing & RSA Checkpoint Bunclody Co. Wexford. Driver forced to take 45-minute rest period due to inadequate breaks. Court appearance to follow in relation to tachograph and drivers card offences.”, An Garda Twitter post read.
