One driver who failed to heed the slow down as the kids are back at school warning paid a heavy price near one national school earlier this week.

Meath Crime Prevention posted on their Facebook page, ‘As part of Meath Divisional Roads Policing Unit’s ‘Back to School Safety’ Initiative, a speed check was carried out at Boardsmill National School on the R156 yesterday (Monday). The driver of this vehicle was detected passing the front of the School at 89km/h in a 50km/h zone.

‘When stopped it was established that the driver did not hold a Driving Licence and did not have Insurance, road tax or current NCT. The vehicle was seized. Fixed Penalty notices were issued and a court prosecution will also follow.’
