PICS: The Gardaí Stopped This Car For Carrying A Mattress On Its Roof Tied With A Garden Hose

Not exactly the safest way to drive on the motorway


The Garda Síochána Twitter account is well worth following because it often gives us stories like this.

Last night the Gardaí came across a motorist on the M50 with an unsecure load on their car, that of a mattress and headboard tied with a length of garden hose. Seriously.

Needless to say, the Garda were not impressed with the improvised fastenings and issued the driver with a fixed charge penalty notice for the reckless behaviour. 

Take a look at the vehicle below.

Must've seemed like a good idea at the time.
