People divided over gardaí catching this speeding driver in Offaly

People are divided over a speeding motorist being caught by gardaí in Offaly on Sunday.

Offaly gardaí posted about the motorist on social media, saying: "Offaly Roads Policing Unit out and about. Checking speed on 80km stretch. One of a few detected for speeding."

They shared a picture of their speed gun registering a driver travelling at 127km/h in an 80km zone in the county.

Most others shut this comment down with one reply reading: "I would rather have the speeders caught than being alerted, slowing down, then speeding up again. What's the problem?"
