“Don’t forget your permit if you want to go to work,” was the message from @GardaTraffic on Twitter today, January 24th, as they reported on a truck being grounded by Gardaí.
The HGV in question was stopped by Gardaí in Cahir Tipperary this afternoon for carrying an unsecured load on the M8 and N24, as seen in the above picture. The truck also had no permit to carry the load in question and the driver was found to not be carrying his CPC card.
Gardaí noted that there was also defects on the tyres and subsequently grounded the vehicle.
