Pictured: Gardai seize 'dangerously defective' car as motorist breaks a number of laws
Gardai in Wicklow have spotted a "dangerously defective" vehicle with three out of date discs - for insurance, tax and NCT - on display.
The driver of the car is now facing a day in court after the badly damaged 4x4 was spotted parked in Wicklow Town on Saturday.
The driver's headlamp is gone and the front wheel arch and bumper are badly damaged, exposing the wheel.
Gardai confirmed that there was no tax, insurance or NCT on the vehicle.
It was also parked on the curb and on double yellow lines.
Gardai shared photos of the car on Twitter and confirmed that a prosecution will follow.
