‘Driving in Ireland’ Stories

  • Wexford Garda Traffic cops had a perfect spot to watch for speeders, but weren’t getting many. Then they discovered the problem – a 12 year old boy was standing up the road with a hand-painted sign, which read ‘SPEED TRAP AHEAD’. The cops also found that the little guy had an accomplice who was further down the road with a sign reading ‘TIPS’ and a bucket full of money. Very enterprising little fellows
  • A motorist was mailed a photo of his car speeding through an automated checkpoint on the N4. An €80 speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he sent the Gardai a photo of €80. The Garda responded with another mailed photo of a set of handcuffs. Nice sense of humor that policeman
  • A young woman was pulled over for speeding in Dublin. A Garda Traffic cop walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book. The young lady immediately says “I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the Garda Traffic Department Ball?”. The Garda immediately replied, without thinking, “The Garda Traffic Department don’t have Balls…..”. There was a moment of silence, then he closed his book, got back in his patrol car and left.
