Six people were arrested on suspicion of drink driving in the Wexford area during the festive period.

Two of the arrests were made as a result of garda checkpoints, one was carried out following a traffic collision and the remainder were made by gardai on patrol.

Gardai will be out in force again into the New Year with a large number of checkpoints planned, according to a spokesman at Wexford Garda Station.

'We would urge people to exercise care on the roads. That applies to speeding and the use of safety belts as well', he said.

Wexford gardai dealt with 16 public order offences from December 20 to December 30, the majority of which were related to public drunkenness.
