Gardaí in Kilkenny have warned local road users about the possible implications of illegal window tinting after intercepting a driver last Saturday.

Local gardaí intercepted the vehicle after identifying that the car was using 'a heavy tint film that in low light would endanger other road users'.

A Section 20 prohibition order was made and the driver of the car was required to rectify the material defect (illegal tint, decreasing visibility) before proceeding.
