A driver, detained by Naas Roads Policing Unit, now faces a court appearance.
The unit was alerted to a car driving dangerously on the M7 work zone.
Gardai say the vehicle failed to stop, and subsequently crashed in to a barrier on the N7 at City West.
The motorist had no drivers licence, tax, insurance or an NCT.
The driver was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.
Kildare Garda are thanking the member of the public who alerted them.
