Gardai arrested a man last night who was driving an inadequately lit tractor on the M1, despite serving a driving ban.

Officers attached to the Roads Policing Unit in Dundalk observed the tractor travelling on the motorway shortly after 7pm.


Officers say the plough positioned on the rear of the tractor was completely unlit and considered it a danger to fast approaching traffic.

Upon stopping the driver, officers discovered the driver was disqualified from driving, via a search using their new Mobility app. The driver was arrested with prosectution proceedings to follow.
