Just when you thought the world couldn’t get any stupider, people go and pull a stunt like this.
An Garda Síochána have taken to Twitter to inform the public that five motorists have been fined for filming and taking photos of a road traffic collision in Waterford.

As they have rightly pointed out, it is dangerous and inappropriate while we’d like to add ‘highly insensitive’. Imagine filming an incident which may have left people injured, or worse, resulted in fatalities.
All for the sake of the Whatsapp chat or Facebook likes no doubt. I think we speak for everyone when we say “cop on, lads”.
