Pictures: Could this tractor and trailer breach any more regulations?
A tractor driver in Kildare has been hit with fixed charge notice and penalty points when stopped by Gardai with an incredibly insecure load.
Gardai in Kildare say the tractor had an insecure load, no indicators, stop lights, tax, and no registration plates front or rear.
Gardai said the driver will be hit with penalty points and a fixed charge notice.
It's not the first agricultural related road safety incident Gardai have highlighted recently.
Garda Traffic Corps from the Cork North Division stopped this vehicle in Mallow, Co. Cork yesterday and kicked off a massive debate online about the legality of the drivers actions.
Gardai said there was no tachograph in use and the driver had no Certificate of Competency.
However, Gardai also hit out at the driver over the weight of the load.
"The maximum allowable weight for this vehicle and trailer was 9.5 tonnes but as you can see, the combined weights were far in excess of this" it said.
