A motorist in Co Waterford has been stopped twice by gardaí for speeding - the second time when they drove away from the initial traffic stop.

In a post on Twitter, gardaí said the Waterford Roads Policing Unit was carrying out speed checks, when a car was clocked at 112km/h in a 80km/h zone.

The motorist was issued with a Fixed Charge Penalty Notice.

However, as they drove away from the traffic stop, they were clocked at 101km/h and stopped again by gardaí.

They were then issued with a second FCPN.

Drivers issued with a FCPN will receive three penalty points on their licence and a fixed fine of €80, which must be paid within 28 days, otherwise it will increase to €120.
