A motorist in Tipperary is set for a date in court after gardaí seized their vehicle over a litany of offences.
Tipperary's Road Policing Unit stopped the navy Volkswagen Bora in Thurles after it was observed the vehicle was being operated without a functioning braking system.
On closer inspection, it was found that the motorist was driving the vehicle without valid tax, insurance or NCT certs.
Taking to the Garda Traffic Twitter account, gardaí wrote: "This car was unable to stop for the Tipperary Roads Policing Unit working in Thurles, as it had no working breaks! The driver also had no Insurance/NCT/Tax."

The Volkswagen was seized and court proceedings are to follow.
The incident follows another close call on Tipp roads earlier in the month when the driver behind the wheel of a Toyota Yaris was observed reversing up the slip road to the M7 outside Nenagh. Take a look at the unbelievable image below...
