Gardai have revealed how one driver tried, but failed miserably, in an attempt to fool them with an altered tax disc.
Galway officers stopped a driver holding a mobile phone while driving today. On examining the vehicle, they discovered the motorist's DIY tax disc.
The incident was revealed on the gardai's popular @GardaTraffic Twitter account this evening.
Well, what can we say.....no marks for effort and two marks on the disk, equals Fraud... pic.twitter.com/VkJcRVJOCs
