Earlier today, gardaí urged motorists to make sure all the alcohol is out of their system before driving.
Gardaí say 11% of fatal road crashes involving drink happen the morning after a night out.
The Road Safety Authority also called for drivers to be cautious if they were out last night.
On Christmas Day this year, 10 people were arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.
That is according to figures released by An Garda Síochána who also confirmed that a further 12 people were arrested between midnight and 9am on St Stephen's Day.
A number of the drivers stopped refused to give a breath sample when asked by Gardaí and will now automatically face a four-year driving ban.
