Over 50 mo­torists sent back to Dublin

Bray People - - NEWS -

CHECK­POINTS were car­ried out over the week­end in Glen­dalough and the Sally Gap as Gar­dai made ef­forts to clamp-down on vis­i­tors from Dublin at­tempt­ing to break the county’s Level 3 rules.

A raft of strict mea­sures for the cap­i­tal were in­tro­duced at mid­night on Friday, in­clud­ing a travel ban and re­stric­tions on gath­er­ings amid the Cap­i­tal’s surge in Covid cases.

Gar­daí main­tained a pres­ence over the week­end at lo­cal des­ti­na­tions which are pop­u­lar tourist lo­ca­tions for vis­i­tors from Dublin.

One car was seized for no in­sur­ance, while an­other mo­torist was ar­rested for an out­stand­ing bench war­rant.

Gar­daí were also keen to re­duce any ob­struc­tions caused by dan­ger­ous park­ing and avoid the chaotic scenes seen in parts of the Wicklow Moun­tains prior to na­tional lock­down and af­ter travel re­stric­tions were ini­tially lifted.

Mem­bers of the Wicklow roads polic­ing unit also re­quested over 50 mo­torists to com­ply with the new guide­lines and turn around and head back to Dublin.
