Garda Síochána Kilkenny/Carlow stopped a driver on his commute to work this morning to inspect his vehicle.

Upon inspection, gardaí found a number of issues with the car.

"No NCT, no tax for 2 years and one of the worst examples of a lethal tyre we've come across," the gardaí noted.

The message from local gardaí continues to be drive safely and #ArriveAlive.
