A fixed charged penalty notice was served on a tractor driver when stopped by Gardaí recently.
Meath Roads Policing brought the vehicle to a halt when they found the driver on their phone.
However, it transpired that the vehicle had not been taxed for 16 years, a discovery made by Gardaí using its mobility app.
The trailer tyres were “excessively” worn, which resulted in the vehicle being seized by Gardaí.
