You couldn't make this up! Scratch card in place of insurance disc on windscreen

The scratchcard in the windscreen slot

This looks like a joke - but unfortunately it was no laughing matter for the motorist involved!

Gardaí stopped this driver in Carlow town and were shocked to see the Lottery scratchcard in the windscreen slot for the insurance disc.

The vehicle was seized under the Road Traffic Act.

A court appearance will follow in coming weeks.
