The Irish are known to be fairly gas for going about certain rules and regulations, and we may have just found the most perfect example yet.

Spotted in Clare by Reddit user mikaandfriends, a council sign for dumping shows that you'd be fined an extremely random amount of money for littering.

Like, really random.

€1904.61 to be exact.

Clare Dumping Fine

Seems strange, but eagle-eyed commenters figured out that the fine must have been £1500 before we changed to Euro, and the amount was simply converted over.

Makes no sense that the county council wouldn't have just rounded it out slightly, but sure look.

Ireland eh?
