Gardai were out on the N33 Link Road for much of the day on Saturday stopping and seizing some cars at a checkpoint.
The checkpoint was located between the M1 Motorway turn off and the N2-N52 roundabout at the north end of Ardee. Motorists reported very long delays with every vehicle being stopped and checked along the way. Some drivers had reported several vehicles being towed away by loaders.
The checkpoint had been in place since around 10.30am this morning and remained in place at 2pm this afternoon. The checkpoint ended at around 3pm.
