New use for coffee holder! Driver tried to hide on Gardaí

A can of beer on the dashboard

When gardaí eventually intercepted this vehicle they found the coffee holder containing a different beverage!

Having an open can of beer in a car is an offence. 

This vehicle was spotted speeding on the Long Mile Road in Dublin and gardaí said the driver tried to evade Gardaí by hiding in a car park.

Officers found an open alcohol container in the car. 

The driver tested for alcohol and failed a roadside breathalyzer test. 

The vehicle was seized and court proceedings will follow in coming weeks.
