Cherry picker caught in clamping hotspot

DILIGENT clampers claimed a cherry picker in the top clamping spot in the city.

The skylift was clamped as it was parked on a single yellow line in Northbrook, Ranelagh, during a time when parking is now allowed in the area.

The vehicle had no registration plate - which is not required for a cherry picker.

As a result, clampers couldn't unclamp the cherry picker as registration plate details are required for this to happen.

Eventually, payment was made and the vehicle was released.

The area of Ranelagh and surrounding streets is the number one clamping area in Dublin - we're sure the cherry picker will know better next time.
