Dublin's Grafton Street is full of wonder. When you walk down it, you can see plenty of great shops, numerous buskers plying their trade a few decent spots to eat.

But rarely, if ever, do you see any vehicles driving down it. The Gardaí did though, early on Saturday morning and have today posted the evidence on Twitter. The caption reads:

'I know a shortcut!

'This car was stopped driving up Grafton Street in the early hours of Saturday morning. '

Driver arrested for drink driving and taken to Store Street Garda Station.'

It's certainly not uncommon to forget important things when you've had a few drinks but there's no excuse for this really.

Lesson learned? Let's hope so.
