Gardaí have discovered another contender for 'international forger of the year', with yet another driver who failed to disguise that their insurance was out of date.

A picture posted by the Gardaí on Twitter shows how the driver unsuccessfully changed the date from December 2016 to December 2017.

It didn't take a genius to recognise the terrible forgery at work. Gardaí on Twitter stated this morning that the driver in question was "all sixes and sevens".

"Forgery wouldn't really be their forte driver stopped in Ennis," the wrote.

The driver was stopped in Ennis, Co Clare and will soon face prosecution according to gardaí.

The latest forgery failure comes just two days after gardai discovered a similarly poor attempt at altering an insurance disc in Co Wexford.

A picture, also posted on Twitter, shows that the driver changed the date June 2016 to June 2018 with a black marker.

But when the blue Renault megane was intercepted by gardaí it didn't take an eagle-eyed detective to spot this terrible forgery effort.
