The streets of Dublin were spookily empty today because of Ophelia, leading some to believe it was the ideal time to practice driving around the city centre.
As the streets were so free of people, one learner driver had the not-so-bright idea of sticking his phone out of his window to take a picture while driving — with a nearby Garda looking directly at him.
It did not end well for the budding driver.
