GARDAI have seized a tractor from a driver who had not insured or taxed the vehicle in 15 years.
The Wexford patrol car pulled over the vehicle as it was leaking oil from its engine, only to discover it hadn’t been insured since 2004.
Hadn’t been taxed or insured since 2004. Tractor impounded
And Gardai later took to social media to share a snap of the tractor. They said on Twitter: “Wexford Road Policing Unit stopped this tractor which had oil leaking from the engine.
“Hadn’t been taxed or insured since 2004. Tractor impounded.”
