Groundhog day for Laois Gardaí as banned taxi driver caught behind the wheel again in Portlaoise

Taxi driver has second car seized in a week

A taxi driver who was detained in the Midlands a week ago has been caught again by Gardaí.

Gardaí in Portlaoise stopped the individual while behind the wheel on Thursday, March 25.

"Earlier today a taxi driver who was arrested only last week for driving while disqualified in Laois returned to Portlaoise driving a different taxi," said gardaí.

The outcome was a case of deja vu for the guards and the driver.

"Same result for this driver however as they were arrested again and charged to appear before Portlaoise District Court. The vehicle was also seized," said Laois Gardaí.
