Just over 40% of drink-driving offences result in convictions in Kilkenny

A report by RTÉ Investigates has revealed major regional differences

Just 43% of drink driving offences resulted in a conviction at Kilkenny District Court last year.

A report by RTÉ Investigates has revealed major regional differences in prosecution rates with 85 percent in Westmeath and just 34% in Waterford.

It also emerged that 27% of all district court summonses were not served in 2016.

It has led to calls for reform of the courts system.
