Drunk would suggest under the influence of alcohol, I guess. As evident in the above reports cocaine abuse is probably a bigger issue these days. I believe it's commonly used by "professional" drivers to stay awake for longer shifts. In fact I've been offered cocaine several times by dealers who have told me "all" taxi drivers use it. I certainly don't and never will but that seems to tie in with drivers unions, including TTnH and ITDF, making representations on behalf of drug dealing (would be) double jobbing taxi drivers in court.
"All" would indeed be an over estimate, personally I would have known of 3 regular users, One reformed, One ate his gun and the other fella is a accident waiting to happen.

Naw ! Drugs were never my thing, actually I'm totally anti-Drugs, even prescription drugs. If I need a few pain killers like fer me ulcer last year then I will take them but apart from that I'm totally Drug free.

When did the Irish term of 'Drunken Driving' turn in to the American term of 'Driving under the influence' (DUI) ?
Most likely that they can now charge you with being drugged up too.
Easier to say Druving under the influence of
A: drink
B: drugs

Motorcyclist seriously injured in suspected hit-and-run in Dublin

Michael Staines
21.28 17 MAY 2019

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist was seriously injured in what investigators believe may have been a hit-and-run in Dublin city centre.

The incident happened on Amiens Street near the junction of Store Street at around 10:20pm last Thursday May 9th.

Gardaí said the motorcyclists, a 27-year-old man from the Fairview area, received serious injuries when he was struck by a car.

He was treated at the scene by emergency services before being removed to the Mater Hospital where he is receiving ongoing treatment for multiple injuries.

Investigators said they understand from their inquiries that his bike might have been hit from behind by a dark saloon-type car while travelling out of the city.

The car failed to remain at the scene.

This evening Gardaí issued an appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward. They are particularly interested in talking to any motorists who may have dash cam footage of the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Store Street Garda Station.
