Gardaí have pulled over the worst driver on the road during Storm Emma - so you're now a little bit safer
There's snow way they could have seen a thing...
There is reckless driving and then there is reckless driving, by which we mean driving so bad that it's almost absurd to put out a public warning, because nobody else could really be that daft.
This was the case on Pearse Street, Dublin today as Gardaí were forced to stop a car, which was driving towards a patrol car seemingly unaware of what was about to happen.
The vehicle in question was almost completely snowed in, according to the An Garda Síochána Twitter account. "Unable to see headlights, indicators, windows and mirrors", the motorist was even more of a danger had any snow fallen from the roof, while breaking, which would have blocked what little of the windshield they could still see out of.
Luckily, the driver was only given a caution and Gardaí assisted them in clearing the car of snow, because clearly they required instructions.
We could say be careful during Storm Emma, or that you should not do this, but honestly, we don't want to insult your intelligence.
