PIC: Garda seize car after driver parks it in the middle of busy Dublin footpath
How did they think this was okay??
The Garda Traffic Corps will be as busy as ever this Christmas season, as they continue to post more and more bizarre discoveries while on the day-to-day job.
Remember when they made a very depressing discovery during a routine traffic stop in Kerry?
Or this time in Cork that ended up giving us an old school Simpsons reference?
You might also recall this van stopped and seized in Kildare with a staggering amount of things wrong with it.
Remember this one, with no licence but loads of extra drugs on board?
Or this one, with the open bottle of wine in the cup holder?
Or maybe this one, because the driver was committing one of the worst speeding offences of the year?
Most recently we had this Waterford driver stopped for using a mobile phone while driving and was found to have A LOT of drugs in their system.
This latest discovery involves what looks like an expensive looking car parked outside the entrance to Brown Thomas just off Grafton Street in Dublin.
But it isn't just "parked", it is parked on a fully pedestrianised zone, in a part of town that is practically overflowing with car parks.
Additionally, on closer inspection, they found even more wrong with the car than they had initially realised.
Combined, it will lead to what we're sure will be a very expensive Christmas for the driver:
Santa won’t be impressed with this driver who drove onto pedestrianised street & parked car in the middle of footpath on a busy Saturday afternoon. Failed to register the car after importing it & no insurance
Car seized and fines and court proceedings to follow. pic.twitter.com/t5aenJo4fq
