Gardaí Issue Strict Warning After Two Motorists Fined For Applying Make-Up While Driving

James Fenton

If you’re one of those people who waits until getting in the car to apply your make-up in the morning then you better take note of this.

This morning, Gardaí fined two motorists €80 after they were caught applying the war paint while behind the wheel. Police warned anyone else who has the same habit that the same could happen to them in a strict, albeit light-hearted, Twitter post which reads:

‘Roses are red violets are blue, €80 fine making its way to you. 2 drivers left heartbroken after being fined this morning for applying makeup whilst driving. Early valentine’s preparations perhaps? Pls drive responsibly.’

The Gardaí as creative as always when it comes to social media. It might be worth taking the extra time to get ready at home in future.
