Tweet of the Day: The most secure Garda car in Ireland

Common sense, as well as Gardai warnings, would suggest you should always lock your vehicle. And the men in blue are practicing what they preach.

Judging by this photo taken by Irish Times writer Conor Pope today, the guards at Pearse Station are taking no chances, regardless of the type of car parked outside. Even something like a child鈥檚 toy car.

The hilarious photograpgh shows that when it comes to your vehicle, it is better to be safe than sorry.

We're also struggling to figure out why the pole itself has a huge padlock around it. You would think in front of the Garda station would be a safe spot, but it looks like they are not leaving anything to chance.

We doubt this mode of transport would fare out well in a high speed chase, or for a rather portly member of the force, but it definitely looks more stylish than the Segways.
