The Gardaí social media accounts often give us a glimpse into the sometimes bizarre and unexpected nature of their job. The latest case saw them seize a ‘Petrol Engine Mountain Bike’ on the M11. The DIY enthusiast also received a court order and some useful advice from Gardaí to stick to the mountains. In fairness you have to admire the owners engineering ingenuity but it’s about as unsafe as you can be on the roads. Gardaí informed the public of the dangers and not to take risks by modifying bikes such as the one below.
