Offaly lorry driver stopped and fined by gardaí for unbelievable reason

Offaly gardaí have issued a fixed charge penalty notice to a lorry driver after he was caught not wearing his seatbelt in bizarre circumstances.

The driver was stopped at a checkpoint in Birr on Monday where gardaí discovered that his seatbelt was fastened but he wasn't wearing it.

Gardaí have said the driver was actually sitting on the fastened seatbelt so as to silence the alarm warning sound in the cab. 

A fixed charge penalty notice was issued to the driver and gardaí have warned, 'seatbelts save lives.'
