They say flattery gets you everywhere... But it doesn't seem to get you out of a court case - according to An Garda Siochána.
The ever-entertaining @GardaTraffic posted this gem of a find earlier today - where the driver was obviously attempting to blindside the Garda on patrol of their massively out-of-date NCT with an array of compliments.

It's been confirmed by the Twitter account that the shower of plámás didn't seem to work - as the offender has a court date to follow.
However, we must admit that we're wildly impressed and want to be this person's best mate.
Bravo to all.
