Driver caught driving at twice the speed limit has tasty excuse to gardai - FILE PIC: Big Mac

A motorist caught driving at twice the speed limit gave an incredible excuse to gardai for why they were driving so fast.

Naas Roads Policing Unit, carrying out a speed check, detected a car speeding at 107km in a built-up area with a 50km speed limit.

Gardaí reported that the driver said they were "in a rush for a Big Mac" burger at the local McDonalds. 

The motorist was arrested and an appearance in court will follow.
