Two new Garda vehicles are being allocated to the South Kildare region today.
The Newbridge area has been operating with only two marked units for around a month, after the engine on one of its patrol cars "blew"
Another, in Kildare Town, has aged-out, having clocked-up over 300,000 kilometres.
There are other unmarked vehicles available to Gardai in these districts
Superintendent Martin Walkers says the new patrol cars were collected this morning.
