The cheeky motorist adorned their car with window and bumper stickers reading “Ur lookin well Garda” and “Yes Garda I did see the speed sign, I just didn’t see you!”

A member of the Garda Traffic Corps stopped the driver on Monday after noting several offences, including a lack of registration plates.

Gardaí said the provisional driver had only been driving since June 20 and was not accompanied by a qualified driver, as is required by law.

Mayorstone Garda managed to take a few photos of the vehicle, which were later shared on the official Garda Twitter account.

“10/10 for effort ! Pity about offences, no accomp driver, no reg, only driving a month," they wrote.

The Garda traffic officers added that the driver would be issued with a fixed charge penalty notice in the post.
