Just who is King of the Road? Earlier this year, a Mayo farmer driving his tractor was catapulted to fame when it emerged in court that he had caused a seven-mile tailback with almost 100 cars trapped behind him.
The judge ordered the farmer to pay €300 in fines and banned him from driving for a year.
The farmer had argued that he had pulled over earlier to allow cars to pass and did not realise the extent of the tailback. There was not a lot of sympathy for him.
