Earlier today, gardai stopped a motorist who was driving whilst holding a mobile phone in South Kildare.
The Naas Roads Policing Unit found the driver was an unaccompanied learner with no L plates displayed.
They also discovered that the tax was out for 460 days and the car had four bald tyres. The vehicle was then seized and several fixed charge penalty notices were issued as well as penalty points.
