“Removal van with the wrong idea!” the Garda Twitter said. This driver had no insurance, no driver’s licence and no certificate of roadworthiness.

The gardaí said that it was an ‘unsafe load’ and that a court date would follow.

The garda crackdown on uninsured, untested and dangerously loaded vehicles is called Operation Waste, and began in September 2014.
