Gardaí in Co. Cavan recently stopped a tractor driver on the N3 Dublin-Cavan road.
The driver was turning right off the national road but was caught on his phone while performing the manoeuvre.
A spokesperson for the Cavan Monaghan Garda Division reported that a fixed charge penalty notice was issued to the driver.
Following the incident, the spokesperson said: “With the silage cutting season in full swing we would urge all road users, in particular drivers of farm machinery, to exercise caution – there are increased numbers of cyclists and pedestrians using our rural roads due to the current 5km exercise restrictions.”
